Lions Member trip to IndiaOne of our Club Members Eileen Cook recently went to India last year to assist a girls orphanage. Eileen has been raising money ever since her last visit and has returned now to give them a helping hand. Great work!
Message for Elieen,
"A big thanks for all your support from the Madikeri Girls Orphanage.
The money raise was spent on a water tank and Plumbing for toilets, Solar hot water, Flooring and Painting which will now allow for more children to be helped, and give them a multi purpose room so they can have lesson etc. We also took the girls shopping and got them each a couple of new outfits each, that was hilarious !!! We also packed the girls into a couple of four wheel drives and went four wheel driving in India lol and took them on a Picnic with lollies and sweets and soft drink."
With Peace and Friendship - Eileen Cook

RIDE FOR SIGHT 2018So sad. The rest of the ride has been called off due to the weather conditions being unsafe for it to continue. We are all disappointed but we can't do anything about the weather.
Now to Inverloch by vehicle for lunch and presentations with a little bit of light entertainment.
It's been a fabulous adventure and already our fundraising has hit a new high, with more funds yet to be received.
Congrats to committee, the cyclists, volunteers and all the Lions Clubs involved along the way for everything running to plan, on time and with safety. Again thanks to Lions for feeding us and organising accommodation and other details.
