Lions Club Inc Working Together

Leading up to Christmas the Lions Club of Mordialloc-Mentone became aware of the needs of a family in Cheltenham. They have a son who was in need of a Special Walker, but this piece of equipment was to cost about $7,000.00, and after trying to obtain assistance for most of 2017, they had nearly given up hope of being able to obtain it.

The Lions Club of Mordialloc-Mentone approached the Australian Lions Foundation to see if they could obtain a $ for $ grant which was made available to them. They then approached other Lions Clubs in the area, which resulted in the Lions Clubs of Sandringham, Brighton, Moorabbin, Clarinda and Dingley Village all giving assistance, and hence, early in January members from some of these Clubs paid a visit to the family, and presented a cheque to enable the walker to be purchased.

In early December, a family in Mordialloc contacted the Lions Club of Mordialloc-Mentone, to see if the Club could assist them with the purchase of a Special Inflatable Bath Chair for their son. This chair, when inflated, sits at the top of a bath, and when deflated lowers the child into the bath. On inflation, it raises the child to top of bath. This removes the need for someone to lift the child in and out of the bath.

The Club is looking for new members to assist with running the Op Shop at 407 Main Street Mordialloc, and assisting with other projects. If you are interested please contact Lion Dennis Wattie on 0417 521490
