Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation (ALCCRF) has made the biggest single donation to channel 9’s 2013 Gold Telethon.
On Monday 10 June 2013, Bob Buckley Chairman of the ALCCRF appeared on Channel 9’s Gold Telethon to make a donation of $325,000 to the Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation.
This amount was the single biggest donation at the Telethon and Bob took great pride in handing the cheque to Dr David Ziegler.
Bob said, “All Lions can stand tall in knowing that this donation was raised by Clubs and members around Australia and came from so many events, big and small, held on behalf of the ALCCRF. These funds will support two specific research programs and it is our intention to provide ongoing support to the vital research that will reduce and hopefully eliminate children’s childhood cancers”.
Bob expressed his thanks to all the Lions Clubs who supported the ALCCRF with their efforts throughout the past year.
