Over the past 10 years the total donations made to various Local, National & International Disaster Relief Appeals total over $72,000.
One of our largest initiatives was the Lions Eye Health Program - Community Presentations.
- This program took a while to develop with presentations to the selected community groups starting in March 2005. These presentations over a number of years were made to a wide variety of organisations including other Lions Clubs, Rotary & Probus Clubs, Church groups etc. Some assistance was provided by local eye-care specialists. This was very successful Club project led admirably by Roger Budd & our efforts were duly acknowledged by District & Multiple District. We made presentations using approx. 9 presenters and we went to around 80 different groups and a total audience of in excess of 3,000 over an almost 3 year period.
Also important to the club is the The East Timor Project.
- We committed to cover the cost of education and school renovations & repairs in Vivueque. We pledged a total cost of $7,500 over 3 years for this total project.
We have and continue to carry out numerous garden clean-ups at a number of local organisations.
- Especially Glernallen School where we normally attend at least twice a year.
- Another large effort was achieved to assist Best Chance Organisation in 2005-06.
- Regular residential garden clean-ups for those in need has also been a regular facit in club activities over the years.
