Carrara Lions Club
Carrara Lions chartered in 2010. We have a great mix of members from different countries, varying backgrounds, some working some not, husbands and wives, singles, with members both youthful (at heart!) and mature (experienced!). We smile a lot, find great reward in what we do and are all part of a friendly social team.
We are a young, enthusiastic club and our fundraising allows us to contribute to a large number of local community support organisations, certain health research projects, & disaster relief when needed. Locally we continue to provide gifts on mothers and fathers day to certain older mums and dads who are without family, collect spectacles for distribution overseas and also donate soft toys to the Mermaid Waters ambulance service to comfort young patients.
We've assisted The House With No Steps Mudgeeraba http://www.hwns.com.au/, and began a project in 2014 to facilitate the creation of a sensory garden for clients at the facility. As a result of our members time and labour along with the co-ordination of community grants (and some hugely creative planning), we were delighted when the "Dream Catcher' garden was officially 'opened' for enjoyment in December 2014 (see photos).
If you have been looking for a little extra purpose in your life and would like to be part of a friendly club whose aim is to add value to our local community, we would love to hear from you. Call 0468 724 531 or email email@example.com to find out more.
