THE Lions Club of Brighton has been keeping busy during the Covid-19 period with smaller scale community activities including bread donations to community centres and schools, creating and distributing family activity packs, planning upcoming events and collecting glasses as part of the Recycle for Sight program.
We collect donated glasses on behalf of the Lions Clubs International Worldwide Eyeglass Recycling Program.
The recycling program receives requests from humanitarian organisations either travelling to a developing country or supplying shipping container loads of suitable humanitarian aid. If you have glasses that you no longer need and would like to see go to a good cause, you can donate them locally using one of our drop boxes which are located at Brighton Doctors and Greenpoint Medical Services. If you are happy to host a collection point or are unable to get to a collection point, please contact us.
The Bridgewater Market returned on Saturday August 29, at the Brighton Civic Centre car park at 25 Green Point Road, Bridgewater. The Bridgewater Market will be held on the fourth Saturday of the month from 10am until 2pm. All proceeds raised by the Lions Club at our markets are invested back into our local community so it would be great to see you there.
For updates on the Bridgewater Market as well as more information on what we do at the Lions Club of Brighton, please visit our website brightonlions.org.au or follow us on Facebook by searching ‘Lions Club of Brighton Inc’. If you would like to take an active role in making a difference in our community and are considering joining the Lions Club of Brighton, you can contact us via Facebook for more information or come and say hi to us at our barbecue stall in the market.
