The President Sue's Message


Welcome to the club’s website.  I am Sue Gilbert and I am President from July 2018 to June 2019.

We are a group of men and women committed to helping people in our community and we do this by raising money for local causes and providing service where there is a need.

Money is raised in a variety of ways throughout the year and last year we made in excess of £38,000 and most of the money raised comes from our carol float which tours Chippenham and Corsham in December and the Cherished Vehicle and Farm Fun Day in June.

The majority of this money we raise is distributed within our local community.  We are also committed to providing service and on Christmas day we deliver lunches to people who might not otherwise see anyone on that special day.  We also take the PHAB Club (Physically Disabled and Able Bodied)  on their annual outing and this year we had a fabulous day in Weston-Super-Mare in wonderful sunshine which was enjoyed by everyone.  We have even been known to dig gardens, paint walls and move furniture!

Every year the President chooses two charities to support and for my year, I have chosen 'Back on Track' - the charity which helps stroke victims - and 'The Rise Trust' - the children's centre in Chippenham.

Being part of the largest service organisation in the world (there are 1.4 million Lions worldwide), we also help international causes like Wateraid and Sightsavers and give to disaster relief through the Lions International Charity. If you want to know more then visit our Community Service page.

Being a member of Chippenham Lions is not all work, we are a friendly bunch and enjoy monthly social events and an annual exchange with our twinned French club in La Fleche.

We always welcome new members who wish to make a positive difference to our community.  If you are interested in learning more do give me a call on 01225 819148 or email me at

Lion President, Sue Gilbert
