The Wolverhampton Lions Club Citizen of the Year Award was first presented by the club in 1977, and has been presented every year since to a person nominated by the members of public. The award is a way of acknowledging a persons good work and the help they have given to their community, neighbourhood or friends, the award has also been presented to local people for doing work above and beyond their duties at work.

Over the years all the past worthy winners of this award have represented the many and varied charities, groups, organisations, schools and neighbourhoods they have helped or gave assistance to, other winners of the award have fund-raised in all so many different ways for their local organisations.

In the past the winners of this award have given their time to help their local community, their neighbourhood, a local charity, group or organisation, some have given their free time, help, encouragement and assistance in running an out of hours school group or a local youth group or youth project. 

The Wolverhampton Lions Club Citizen of the Year Award allows members of the public to recognise and to acknowledge the work that these unsung heroes do and to say thank you to them. The winner of the award receives a cheque for £150 for the charity, group or organisation of their choice, a Personalised Award Plaque and their names will be added to the roll of honour on the clubs Citizen of the Year Award plaque that shows all the previous winners of the award.
