NEXT month marks the 10th birthday of the Lions Club of Brighton Inc. To celebrate this and raise much-needed funds for the Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation (ALCCRF), we will be holding a barbecue at Covehill Shopping Centre on Saturday, June 19, from 10am to 2pm.
All funds raised will be used to help achieve ALCCRF’s mission to prevent kids with cancer from dying by raising funds nationally and donating these funds to the best scientific and clinical childhood cancer research conducted across Australia.
Please join us and buy a sausage or two to support this worthy cause. Sausages will be $2.50 each and drinks $2. We want to thank Covehill Shopping Centre Management for their support by hosting us for this worthy fundraiser.
Last month, two Lions members had the pleasure of cooking for the residents of Ronald McDonald House. By donating and cooking a meal, families could have a night off, have a home-cooked meal, and didn’t have to eat hospital food.
Ronald McDonald House is a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill children being treated at Hobart hospitals and is a cause we are extremely proud to support.
The Lions Club is a great way to meet new people, socialise and make a difference in your community. If you would like to join or learn more about what we do, please come and see us at the barbecue or you can visit our website www.brightonlions.org.au or email us at email@example.com.
