The Lions Club of Corio Norlane is taking on another venture to help others.
Members are collecting plastic milk and soft drink bottle tops to give to a company called Envision, who are making colourful hands for children in third world countries. The hands are made with a 3D printer and are life-changing for children.
Residents can organise a collection, contact the club and they will collect from you.
Meanwhile, the club is continuing its many other activities, including:
- Opportunity Shop.
- Road Home Geelong project for homeless.
- Bike maintenance project.
- Bike Education trailer.
- Computer donation project.
- Peace Poster competition.
- Collecting gate takings at North Shore Football Club.
- Supervising car parking at the Royal Geelong Show.
- Trivia Night in October supporting local charities.
- Supporting Northern Christmas Carols.
- Selling Christmas cakes.
- Running barbecues.
- Collecting unwanted eye glasses.
- Collecting stamps.
Club members are continually striving to achieve more in their local community and if you have some spare time on your hands and wish to make a difference, contact Richard Walter on 0402-409-895 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Richard said anyone who has other ideas or suggestions to help the community but doesn’t know how to achieve them, can contact the club and it may be able to help.
“We are also looking for members with multicultural backgrounds who are interested in helping their own communities,” Richard said. “With this support we can make a difference.”
