Code of Ethics

Members of Crawley Lions with Mayor Chris Cheshire

TO SHOW my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.

TO SEEK successful and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my own self-respect lost because of questionable acts on my part.

TO REMEMBER that in building up my business, it is not necessary to tear down others, to be loyal to my clients or customers and true to myself.

WHENEVER a doubt arises as to right or ethics on my position or action towards my fellow man, to resolve such doubt myself.

TO HOLD friendship as an end and not a means. To hold that true friendship exists not on account of the services performed by one to another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given.

ALWAYS bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to my nation, my state and my community, and to give them my unswerving loyalty in word, act and deed. To give them freely of time, labor and means.

TO AID my fellow man by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak, and my substance to the needy.

TO BE CAREFUL with my criticism and liberal with my praise; to build up and not destroy.

I’M A LION BECAUSE …

“You see the joy in people’s hearts and they say thank you, and the smile of a child. It’s all those things that make you realize you’ve done something for your community.”

Viv Grater, South Africa

“For the mere satisfaction that I get in my heart and for the service we’re providing the less fortunate people, I’m really proud to be a Lion.”

David Mutayisa, Uganda
