They work closely with the RSPCA and Currumbin wildlife Sanctuary who provide the specialist care. They would place some 30,000 calls to volunteers in any year

    Training and orientation in the care of your selected group of animals is provided free of charge and they are always on the lookout for more volunteers.

    Lions Renal Laboratory set up at the PA Hospital in the early days

    To: the District Governors and Members of LIONS districts 201Q1, 201Q3 and 201Q4.



    Dear LIONS DG 201Q1 Ann Reed,



    I have just enjoyed watching a 15 minute movie mentioned in 201Q1’s on-line news items . It was made by one Roy Worfold, a true gentleman and a dedicated LION (of "201K") back in the 60's and 70's, and it explains 'what is a LIONS Club'. (Movie on: https://lionsclubs.org.au/a-glimpse-into-our-history/)



    Well, I am very happily aware of what LIONS Clubs can do. I saw myself in the movie, because I was the doctor shown in the LIONS Renal Laboratory at Princess Alexandra Hospital. How well I recall the remarkable support I received from so many Clubs in (then) 201K and 201A districts. How much I enjoyed doing my research backed by people who believed whole-heartedly in the need for it.



    I used to talk about the work we were doing at all 201A and 201K Conventions, and many times I talked to individual LIONS clubs. However, it occurred to me that, although I did my best to explain the research in straight-forward language, LIONS did not have a hard copy of the publications that arose from that research in my time as your research Fellow from 1966-1978.



    So, I decided to photocopy the more important of those publications and put them together in a book as a record of the outcome of your support for our work back in those exciting days, to allow your full perusal of them . I hope this may provide something of historical significance for you and your District to keep, to show what LIONS did to get medical research rolling, not only for my work but for a ll the impressive subsequent achievements in medical research you have made and are making possible.



    Therefore, if you would accept this book for your archives, it would be a great honour to me and I believe to the memory of the countless LIONS Members who made it all possible.



    Yours in fond memories and with my very best regards, sincerely,

    John Healy.

    May is recycle for sight month

    This month, collect used eyeglasses and raise awareness about the Lions eyeglass recycling program.



    Eyeglass recycling is one of the Lions most popular activities.



    Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions in developing nations lack access to basic eye care services. Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and continue to lend their support to the Lions Recycle for Sight Program.



    Starting an eyeglass collection in your community can be an easy and rewarding activity that will raise your club's visibility and provide your fellow Lions with a great deal of satisfaction in serving others.



    Contact local businesses, schools, libraries, places of worship, city administrative centers and eye care professionals. Invite them to assist with your collection efforts by hosting collection boxes.

    Use Lions Recycle for Sight resources for your collection campaign,

    Send your collected eyeglasses, reading glasses, frames and sunglassesse to one of the official Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers.

    Report your club's eyeglass collection efforts via the online Lions Club Service Activity Report.
