FORMED: 28th MAY 1959 - Sponsored by Lions Club of Wollongong NSW. The Club was chartered on 15th June 1959. The Club's Charter meeting was held on 26th September 1959 which was attended by over 250 guests and officials.
Since 1959 over $A1.2 million has been raised and donated to support local, state, national and international organisations and individuals in need. Lions are proud of the fact that NOT ONE CENT is used from donated funds or monies raised to meet Club administrative costs. What funds are donated are ALL applied to the purpose for which it is raised or directed back into the Community.
70,000 volunteer hours have been contributed by our Club members over the years in support of local community organisations, fund raising and projects.
See "PROJECTS" for indicative list of activities and projects supported in those years.
Lions Australia is part of an international association, filled with people who are joined by the common desire to make their communities better, by using their creativity, enthusiasm and energy.
