Meet the MD Chairman

Lioness Sandie Briault

Witham & District Lioness Club

At the end of June 2019 I took over the job of Multiple District 105 Lioness Chairman. I felt a huge amount of pride and pleasure that my fellow Lionesses elected me to be their Chairman.

I have been a member of Witham and District Lioness Club for 30 years and we are now part of the New District of 105CE.

My husband has been a Lion for a very long time and is also an Honorary Lioness a title he is immensely proud of so it was a natural progression for me to follow him into the organisation. Our four children were brought up in the true spirit of Lionism and the younger two helped form a Leo Club and are now members of a Lions Club along with our daughter in law

I have held most positions in my Club from President, Secretary, Treasurer, Social Chairman and have also taken an active role in the Zone being zone secretary and assisting the Zone Chairman.

Nationally I joined the Advisory Body (Governing Body for Lionesses) around 15 years ago and served as Secretary, Advisory Body Representative, Club Supplies and special projects Officer. All positions I enjoyed immensely.

Currently the Advisory Body is made up of 16 positions and I am pleased to say they all work tirelessly to Promote Lionesses and help all the Lionesses in Multiple District 105 to provide the community service we are so very good at. We are well known for the fellowship and friendship in Lionism but Lionesses are so very good at looking after each other, something I am very proud of.

Lionesses are simply Ladies of all ages and walks of life who come together to help others less fortunate than themselves in this country and abroad and to enrich their own lives with new friendships.

The Charity I have chosen to support for my two years of office is “Young Minds” a small charity who are trying to help and support young people with mental health issues, a problem that is growing all the time. I hope to raise as much awareness as possible and have a representative at our Conference in February.
