Lions Clubs International Australia is very pleased to be supported by InvoCare, an Australian success story and the leading provider of funeral and related services in the Asia-Pacific region.
InvoCare assists Lions Australia in several important ways. First, a Memorandum of Understanding exists between InvoCare and Lions Australia to support the hosting of District conventions, grow membership and to sponsor the memorial sessions that feature during District and National Conventions. The fruits of this Memorandum were especially visible during the 2010 Lions Clubs International Convention that was held in Sydney.
Second, InvoCare is a significant supporter of the Lions Recycle for Sight programme. Thanks to funeral brands such as White Lady Funerals, Simplicity Funerals, Guardian Funerals, Le Pine Funerals, George Hartnett Funerals, Metropolitan Funerals, Blackwell Funerals and Purslowe Funerals, there are eye-glasses collection boxes throughout Australia. InvoCare’s support of this important cause has seen more than 200,000 glasses donated in recent years. InvoCare has now just begun supporting the Lions Hearing Aid Recycling initiative.
InvoCare is also a significant supporter of Lions Club activities around Australia. Since 2010, InvoCare has contributed more than $185,000 through ticket sales at events, donations for raffles and a wide range of acts of corporate giving. Without this contribution, many Lions Clubs would not have been able to meet their fund-raising goals.
Last, InvoCare supports Lions Clubs through active membership. More than 90 members of InvoCare’s staff are also active members of Lions Clubs, helping to keep Club activities dynamic and securing the future of our volunteer association.
Lions Clubs International Australia is very thankful for the support it receives from InvoCare. InvoCare is active in other countries around the Asia-Pacific as well, and is a supporter of Lions Clubs and activities in both New Zealand and Singapore.
