The Lions Club of Christ Church West was chartered on November 25th 1992.
At that time, Lions International ended its Lioness program and the South Lioness club opted to form this new Lions Club.
The Charter President was Lion John Bourne, the guiding Lion Carl Browne and the Sponsoring Club was Lions Club Barbados South.
Our current president is Lion Randy Payne ( pictured above).
Signature projects target sight preservation and support of children with special needs.
We were pleased to donate equipment to the Orthoptics Clinic at the Lions EyeCare center at the Queen Elizabeth hospital and we are currently fundraising towards the purchase of a diode laser for the treatment of glaucoma which is a major threat to vision in our country.
The club is also committed to supporting the special educational programs at the Irving Wilson School which caters to students who are low-vision/blind; hearing-impaired/deaf and some with autism.
We also have ongoing projects with the Vauxhall Senior Citizens' Village where we have assisted with the refurbishment of their recreation room; conducted a Reading Action program and organized lunches and other social activities.
Other routine projects include diabetes screening and other areas of health promotion; work in primary education including the provision of school supplies and an annual spelling quiz; beach clean-ups and other programs.
We look forward to continued service in partnership with our sponsors and members of the public whom we thank for their unflagging support.
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
