Lions Clubs celebrate a ‘Century of Service’ at Buckingham Palace

The Countess of Wessex G.C.V.O. as Patron of Lions Clubs of the British Isles held a Royal Reception at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday, 28th February to celebrate a ‘Century of Service’. HRH has been our Patron since 2004.

Hundreds of Lions members joined together for the 100th Birthday of Lions Clubs International to celebrate this landmark anniversary with the organisations’ partners.

Lion Phil Nathan MBE, Chair of the Centenary Celebrations for Lions Clubs of the British Isles said “let me begin by saying that during our 1st Century of service, Lions Clubs have touched millions of lives of people that needed us. 100 years of service to the community is a remarkable achievement, made possible by the selfless actions of many thousands of individual men and women, each of whom has sought to make ‘their’ community a better place.  As we enter our 2nd Century, the cry for help from those in need will most certainly become louder and we as volunteers are ready to show as Lions, We Care”.

Lions Clubs International focusses through its Lions and Leos members upon major projects that address diabetes, youth, the environment, hunger relief, childhood cancer and sight issues affecting communities throughout the world.

MD Peace Poster winner 2017-18

MD105 Peace Poster Competition 2017 winnerThe winner of this year's MD Peace Poster competition was not from our District as previously displayed here. The winning entry was created by Mia Reed aged 13, sponsored by Clacton-on-Sea Lions Club in District 105E. Mia's poster was chosen as a merit award winner in the 30th Annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest.
Our apologies for the earlier misleading item.


The International Board has now approved the re-districting as agreed at the MD Convention in Blackpool. Both the Council of Governors and our Cabinet will, as soon as possible, be working on the logistics of making the transition. Some Lions have asked if they can make contact with the Clubs near them who will be joining us in District SC in July 2019. At the moment please do not do that as we need to work out the "big picture" before getting down to individual Clubs. I think the first contact we will make with the new Clubs will be to invite them to our Convention in March.

Special Olympics GB


SOGB Sheffield logoIn 2010 I listened to Lawrie McMenemy address our national convention in Leeds. He reduced many of us to tears of emotion as he described his work with the Special Olympics organisation and his speech motivated me to volunteer at the next national games in Bath in 2013.

It proved to be the most fulfilling, and rewarding, week of my time as a member of Lions Clubs!  Together with the dozens of other Lions from around the country, including many from our own District, I experienced the same emotions Lawrie had described 3 years earlier. This was the true meaning of what we do in Lions - “We Serve”.

In 2016, my experiences led my son, who lives in Los Angeles, to volunteer at the Worldwide Games in California - with the same result.

In 2017 - our Centennial year - Lions will again be supporting the next National Special Olympics GB (SOGB) Games in Sheffield with 3,000 athletes and 5,000 family members (many from our area) by providing the Families Programme. I will be there working directly for SOGB as an event coordinator at the football tournament.

Before that happens, I am proud to say that Lawrie McMenemy has accepted my invitation to speak at our District Convention in Bournemouth; local Special Olympics athletes will also be there as meters and greeters.

Consequently, I am asking the Clubs and Members of District 105D to raise funds and donate them to our District Special Olympics Appeal Fund. Why? Please visit our Special Olympics website page and take time to view the videos. /news/specialolympics.html 

Thank you
