My aim is to try to improve the quality of life for those less fortunate in the community,

to encourage children and youth to be physically active,

to support the disabled,

to increase the membership of the Lions to further enhance our capabilities,

        In doing the above I will:

                                Serve my fellow Lions to the best of my ability

                                Ensure that those in need are given help

                                Recruit new members to ensure that the
                                  La Cala de Mijas Lions will be here in the future

                  Give      Vigorous effort on my part to ensure the above

                  and to   Enjoy my year in office.

Slightly amended but as Confucious said:

The strength of my team, derives from the integrity of their leader

Thank you all very much for allowing me to be your President


President Anita Ann Humphreys  2019 to 2020

I am proud and honoured to be the President of a Club that has shown such courage and foresight over the 21 years since it started in 1998.

My aim will be to encourage and inspire our members to be ambassadors and advocates, for what being a Lion is all about. 
My mission will be to lead our Club to another successful year of service and to achieve the total of 1 million euros raised since the Club started.
We will continue to help our community wherever we can, by providing a service in areas where the:
homeless need feeding, animals need shelter, the sick need a helping hand, the environment needs protecting,  the visually impaired can see better, diabetic and dementia sufferers are supported, the air we breath is clean, violence is curtailed.
All of these concerns can be met if we pull together as a team with one objective, and that is to Serve our Community with strength, vision and kindness.
I thank each and every one of our supporters, who on a day to day basis make our dreams possible. And l encourage new members to step forward and join our family


President 2018- 2019  Maggie Bobowicz 

My mission is to :-

  1.  feed the hungry
  2.  support the disabled
  3.  improve quality of life for the less fortunate in our society
  4. encourage and support youngsters through academic and physical activity
  5. support the La Cala Lions Diabetic Support Group
  6. support animal welfare
  7. support LCIF Sight First and Disaster appeals
  8. endeavour to ensure greater integration with the local community
  9. apply for grants wherever possible, local or International

Needs are constantly changing, and I trust we will respond accordingly.

Remember Kindness Matters and together we can achieve more.


Message from Julie Barry

President 2017 -2018

The Lions Club in La Cala de Mijas was founded in 1998.
I am sure that 20 years ago, our founding members could not have imagined, in their wildest dreams, that by this year we would have donated nearly 800,000 euros to our community.

We are now donating in excess of 60,000 euros every year.

What a fantastic achievement this is !

We are celebrating two big milestones this year, 20 years of our Club and 100 years of Lions Club International.
I am very proud to have been this year’s President, and would like to thank the Club Members for their support and friendship during my Term of Office. I would like to give an even bigger thank you to all our volunteers who staff the shop and help us to raise money.
We are always looking for new members and volunteers. All you need is time, kindness and a willingness to help us to make a difference.
The last thank you, I give to all to the wonderful people on the Costa Del Sol for their continued support. We could not have done it without you.
