“We serve “ is the official motto of Lions , but Blackburn Lions have added to the motto, we say “We Serve and we have fun doing it”. Our service in 2019 started local, but included the state, the nation and the world.
Here are some examples of our local service
We funded much needed equipment for Box Hill hospital
We raised over $3500 for Eastern Emergency for locals in need
We provided tables and other needs for a Mitcham programme providing meals for isolated and homeless people
Our service extended to the state and the nation
We helped those affected by the fires in the Ottways
We provided funds to Dairy farmers doing it hard
We aided the communities affected by the storms in the Dandenongs in 2021
We also served the wider world
Through Lions International we contributed to disaster relief and medical needs in many countries
With our twin club Pandino we helped fund a breakfast program for needy schoolchildren.
