BBQ @ Masters
Lions held another successful fundraising BBQ at Rouse Hill Masters on the first weekend of April 2016. Below are some of the members in action at the BBQ.
Lions Biggest BBQ 2014
Lions Biggest BBQ is an annual fundraising event undertaken by many of the 1,400 Clubs across the country. This year the BBQ can take place at any time during April, when it best suits your Club. Funds raised will be used to help achieve ALCCRF’s mission to prevent kids with cancer dying by raising funds nationally and donating these funds to the best scientific and clinical childhood cancer research conducted right across Australia.
“It never ceases to amaze me what Aussies can do when they work together” said Peter Lamb, Trustee of ALCCRF. Who would have thought the good old Aussie Barbie could have been used to help Lions raise over $4.5 million for childhood cancer research. Well that’s what we have done but the job’s not over. More than 600 Australian kids are diagnosed every year with various forms of childhood cancer and unfortunately we are still seeing around three kids dying every week.
Many of the 1,400 Lions Australia clubs will hold barbeques during April to raise funds for medical research into the causes and prevention of, and to find a cure for, childhood cancer. Why Lions have been passionately supporting childhood cancer research since 1996 is very simple. “We believe every child deserves the chance at a healthy life” said Peter Lamb.
