Greater Mt Gravatt-Mansfield Lions Club History
The club has served the Community Service needs of the Mt Gravatt-Mansfield area continuously since its formation in 2009.
As our Club is dedicated to helping those in need, there is an endless list of the ways in which we have aided and assisted the people of the community in need of our service. We work hard to raise funds in a variety of ways to enable us to achieve our publicized purpose of, "giving freely of our time, labour and means", in the pursuit of giving help and comfort to those of the community who need our assistance.
We have assisted the youth in our area by developing the Youth of the Year Quest for year 12 Students. We promote Peace through our International Peace Poster Contest Project for 11 to 13 year olds.
The list of people and organisations supported by the Greater Mt Gravatt-Mansfield Lions Club goes on, and on, and on. Needless to say we hope that the Club itself will go on, and on, and on, well into the future.
We have given donations to the local Meals On Wheels Service so they can continue their vital work in the Community. We support a variety of both Community Projects and individuals namely Blue Care Respite Centre; Spiritus Care; as well as St Barts Youth Hostel. We have also helped various schools in the area namely Seville Rd S/S where we provided the money to run a course to assist Non English speaking parents We purchased a Hearing Assistance system for a classroom at Mansfield State School. For the Mt Gravatt East Primary School Fife and Marching band we donated some money for Band Equipment etc.
We provide donations to help with natural disasters such as the Tasmanian and Victorian Fire appeals; New Zealand Earthquake appeal; and the Bundaberg Floods which was raised by having a sausage sizzle at Bunnings Mt Gravatt. We continue to provided assistance to individuals, Lions Organisations and Community Organisations both here and overseas.
