Mayor's Award








We are delighted that one of our members, Gill, was presented with the Mayor’s Award at the Town Council's Annual Volunteer Reception on 21st April 2023.


Gill has volunteered with Stratford Upon Avon Girlguiding for 30+ years, in various roles, and also volunteers with the Poppy Appeal and Shakespeare Lions. She has volunteered with Stratford upon Avon Foodbank, VASA,The Ken Kennet Center, and the Air Ambulance. She is a truly amazing women, who deserved to be celebrated.

The Mayor said about Gill and another volunteer:-

"Their willingness to share both their time and their talents by volunteering says a lot about them as they make a commitment to share that most precious of resources – their time – they choose to make life better for those who need support, help or guidance.

Words cannot adequately convey the gratitude that I, the Town Council, and the Town wish to express, but please know that what they do is recognised, appreciated, valued and cherished."

We have been serving and supporting individuals, families, youth organisations and charities in need, both in our local and global community, since January 1967.


We are one of 46,000 Lions clubs internationally and proud to be part of the world’s largest voluntary community service provider with more than 1.4 million members in more than 200 countries.


Thank you so much for visiting our website and we all hope you find it a rewarding experience.

Over the past 14 months we have been able to rapidly expand our proactive support for both our 

local and global community. For example; in July we provided Life Support Skills Training to our fourteen hundred and fiftieth student since we commenced the programme a few years ago. This year to date we have already collected, sorted and packed in excess of 8000 recycled spectacles 

for disbursement to the developing world. 


Our core values and beliefs are, that belonging to a Lions Club, brings: 

Fellowship, Fulfilment and Fun!


On the Fun side we have a very active social committee and meet up regularly to enjoy each other’s company. This year we have attended a lambing session at a local farm, visited a Saxon church followed by a pub lunch and walked together in a bluebell wood.
