Consider assisting your communityYour New Year's resolution.
Perhaps it’s time today for you to make or reflect on your current New Year's resolution.
According to research I’ve undertaken, volunteering is the most common New Year’s resolution. Volunteering has been shown to improve your mental health, physical health and confidence. This can enhance your life and provide a sense of purpose. said Alice Cunningham Lions District Q 3 Membership chair.
Lions are a world-wide community based service organisation. We provide many opportunities to make a difference in your community. Examples of our community service projects are our Lions five Global Causes – childhood cancer, diabetes, environment, hunger & vision.
One of our District projects supporting childhood cancer is our annual Lions Camp Quality Christmas party. This party is held at the end of November on Bribie Island. Another is ‘Supermax & Bryce “. Lions are involved with raising money to donate a night light and other items to children recovering from cancer. Please read Bryce’s inspirational story at - https://www.supermaxandbryce.org/
You have the option of being one of our casual volunteers. You offer Lions a pair of hands for a project that suits your interest.
See a short list of our projects - https://201q3.lions.org.au/projects
Would you like to “pass it on” and help others less fortunate? Perhaps you will offer Lions some of your free time, knowledge and skills. Please contact a Lion member to discuss how you could assist.
