This is the only school in our council district and are a leading example of good schooling in WA, with the promise of fine citizens for our future.
The February market proceeds went to LIONS EyeSight Foundation of WA, where eyesight service is provided, and research done, from Charlie Gardiner Hospital .... it is a major and most beneficial understaking for the welfare of our society.
Our 3rd market proceeds will help support LIONS Alhziemers Foundation, and we look forward to new information and support from them!
Our April market supported the Sea Scouts and the Freo Rowing Club, who assist and co-operate/participate in this wonderful community event.
Our May and June market proceeds will go towards our club dipersion of monies collected through our activities during the year, which happens at the end of the year. Our club members decide, but it includes local charities (such as St Pat's and the Salvos) as well as the big end of town stuff where LIONS have foundations for Australian medical research and disaster relief.

Lions Awareness Days in Western AustraliaDue to the 1st Saturday of March being a Long Weekend in Western Australia we opted to approach Bunnings to host Lions Clubs at their 41 stores on Saturday 9th and Sunday the 10th of March for their "Sausage Sizzles".
Bunnings were very happy to oblige and booked those dates for Lions clubs.
Bunnings also allowed the Lions Clubs to have additional displays such as information booths at the stores in the foyer area. Many of the clubs took advantage of this and did display material about Lions.
It was suggested that the clubs that held "Sausage Sizzles" should donate the proceeds to ALCCRF in conjunction with the ALCCRF Biggest BBQ competition in which Bunnings donate the major prize of a BBQ.
Many of the clubs took advantage of this weekend Lions Awareness Day(s) and report that it was most successful exposure to the public and would look forward to repeating this again next year.
Clubs that did not have access to a Bunnings Store were able to arrange other events on that weekend to give them exposure to the local communities.
Many thanks to Bunnings for the assistance in this event weekend.

Superkids, Superheroes Scooter Ride Bridgetown to Perth Children's Hospital
The Lions Club of Jandakot Lakes provided dinner and breakfast for the Superkids, Superheros when they overnighted at Woodman’s Point Discovery Park on Saturday the 8th of September 2018.
A special Bridgetown family had their world torn apart when their precious 8 year old son lost his battle with childhood cancer.
In their son's honour, even before he passed away, Kim and Simon Kane along with some of the locals from Bridgetown started their fundraising for “Kids with Cancer”.
For the past 3 years Kim, Simon and a bunch of supporters from Bridgetown have ridden motorised scooters from Bridgetown to PMH (this year Perth Children’s Hospital) fundraising along the way
Over the last 3 years the 9 day trip has raised over $150,000.00 for Kids Cancer Research.
Well done to all those involved!
