Every year, at the end of June, Lions Clubs change their ‘Board of Directors’ in order to bring in new faces and ideas. It ensures that members grow personally and are happy to put up their hand to help.
YOUR TIME IS THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT YOU CAN GIVE
Volunteering is a great way to contribute to your community. It provides a variety of benefits, including making new friends, sharing skills, getting job-ready and becoming a part of the local community. Many people volunteer in one way or another. In fact, Australian society would be significantly poorer if not for current volunteers.
The reason many people choose Lions Clubs International to channel their volunteering time is because your time is spread across many causes, not just a single, worthwhile cause. Causes we help with are on local, national and international scales including;
LOCAL CAUSES: (Personal) Community assistance, community events (eg. Hills Carols, Carnivale etc), BBQ’s and Lions cake sales, school assistance (school and pre-school fetes and events) and park (Beverley Place) maintenance.
NATIONAL CAUSES: Medical Research Foundation, Diabetes Foundation, Eye Health Foundation and Eyeglass Recycling Centres, Disaster Relief Foundation, Cord Blood Foundation, Children’s Cancer Foundation, Prostate Cancer Foundation, Emergency Accommodation Centres
INTERNATIONAL CAUSES: Disaster relief, environment, sight, cancer and diabetes.
So, if you want to make a difference and think that Lions may be the organisation for you, please give me a call ( 0409 688 675) or send an email (email@example.com). Lions membership is open to all, regardless of age or gender – in fact, our youngest member is 23 and our club is roughly 50% male and female.
