WHAT WE DO and WHO WE HELP
Used spectacles are alway needed for the underpriviaged. Why don't you contact your local Optometrist to see if they will collect them for you. Australian Lionsonoz members can get them to the Secretary when meeting at our face-to-face gatherings or at Conventions. Otherwise your local Lions Club will greatfuly accept them. Don't throw them out as they still have good use in them when you are finished with them!
While our members are travelling or have spare time they are involved in our Lionsonoz Knitting Project. We knit Items for Premmie Babies, jackets and booties, bed socks, soft toys, teddies, beanies, mittens, knee rugs, basket purses, love cushions and shawls. We support Hope Bears who also support Ronald McDonald House; Miracle Babies Foundation with booties, beanies and jackets. We also support Guardian Angels and Father Riley's Youth off the Street.
Some items are sold at Conventions, shop at Ebor and the Post Office at Wooli. The funds from these sales go to the Australian Lions Children's Cancer Foundation.
I would appreciate any donations of wool should you happen to have some tucked away in your cupboards, and yes any advice they you can assist me with, also interesting easy patterns.

Some of our members have been engaged in the "Return & Earn" and donated the money to our Admin account, hoping that more members will participate in this and hopefully we will be able to reduce some of our yearly membership fees.
Stamps - Lions are in need of Used Postage StampsThe letters that come into all of our households usually have a postage stamp attached. In so many cases these are just thrown away!
The Australian postage stamp is regarded as one of the best in the world and even though they are not worth very much individually, when they are sold in bulk the funds raised can be quite substantial.
The money raised by the sale of used postage stamps help to provide funds to assist the Lions Childrens Mobility Foundation, giving help and support to children with mobility difficulties. One of the main benefits is the provisions of Hart Walkers for children with Cerebral Palsy and similar problems. Australian Lionsonoz members can get them to the Secretary when meeting at our face-to-face gatherings or at Conventions. Otherwise your local Lions Club will greatfuly accept them.

Help Lions Clubs - More than just BBQs!
Mainstream Lions Clubs are requested to forward details of projects that they will need help. As our members travel, we would need good lead time to be able to be in your area to assist. Please forward details to the Secretary. Eg: A number of our members will be helping Boggabri Lions Club with their Drover's Campfire again this year.
