Australia’s largest service organisation, Lions Australia celebrates Lions Awareness Day on 7th March
Many refer to Lions as Australia’s best kept secret but next month Lions volunteers across Australia will be hosting a number of special events in their communities to celebrate Lions Awareness Day.
Over the past year, as our country has struggled through what could be its worst drought and bushfires in history Lions have mobilised to help those impacted.
Lions Australia CEO Rob Oerlemans says this year, Lions Awareness Day is an opportunity to recognise the incredible impact of the Lions network particularly in times of crisis.
“Lions are people in your local community who come together to volunteer and make a difference. Everyday Lions volunteers across Australia go above and beyond to help people in need and make our community a better place to live. We are so proud of the incredible work this organisation has achieved over the years. Whilst the past year has been a difficult one for our country it has been a powerful reminder of the importance of Lions particularly when a disaster strikes,” says Lions Australia CEO Rob Oerlemans.
