    “LIONS - SUPPORTING DROUGHT AFFECTED FARMERS AND COMMUNITIES”

    The Lions of North Queensland have mobilised in their efforts to assist Drought Stricken Farmers, Graziers and their Communities as crippling drought continues in large parts of Eastern Australia, and including many areas of North and Western Queensland.

    When disaster strikes the Australian Lions Foundation is amongst the first to offer disaster relief. Through the Australian Lions Foundation, our local Lions Clubs and Members are supporting struggling families and communities as they battle to cope with the effects of one of the most crippling droughts on record.

    Lion John Muller, Public Relations Chairperson for Lions in North Queensland, said “We are very appreciative of the generous nature of North Queenslanders to support others when they are in need, and it is now our turn to give back to those affected by drought who have previously assisted us with financial donations following recent cyclones and floods – especially after cyclone Yasi. And through our Australian Lions Foundation, every cent raised goes directly where it is needed most – to support those in need. There are absolutely no deductions to cover administration costs as is the case with some other charities and foundations – 100% raised is distributed” John said.

    How can you help? Teams of Lions are out in force across North Queensland collecting funds for the Australian Lions Foundation Drought Relief Appeal. This will culminate in a major effort over the next week across several locations within the Townsville and Charters Towers area. Just look for our Lions Public Relations Trailer, and the team of friendly Lions with their collection buckets and tins close by. They will be very visible in their Lions shirts!
