  • Whitford Lions Fair Cancelled

    The Lions Club of Whitford Fair that was to be held at McDonald Reserve on the 5th of April 2020 has been cancelled due to Coronavirus.

    The Fair has run for twenty seven consecutive years and we are are extremely disappointed to have to cancel but the health and safety of the community comes first. We will look for an opportunity to hold the Fair later in the year but if that is not possible the Fair will be back as big and as wonderful as ever next year.

    New LCIF Video Released

    See how your support of LCIF delivers on the needs of people around the globe.

    One of the most important ways that Lions make a difference in their communities and the world is through Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), the official charitable organisation of Lions Clubs International.

    With funding from LCIF, Lions carry out large-scale humanitarian projects in their community. Every dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly toward a grant, as administrative costs are paid by interest on investments. Lions’ support of the Foundation is critical, as donations from Lions provide the majority of LCIF’s revenue.

    Since LCIF began in 1968, it has awarded more than 10,268 grants totaling more than US$729 million. Together, Lions and LCIF are making a difference for millions of people. “We Serve” better together.

    LCIF grants go toward Lions sight services, disaster relief, health initiatives and more. Support LCIF and make a difference.

    Lions - We Care, We Give, We Serve, We Need You!

    The Lions Clubs in Western Australia (Districts 201w1 & 201w2) have collaborated to promote Lions by organising an Electronic Billboard in the Perth Underground Train Station as well as on the back of two CAT buses which travel around the CBD in Perth.

    We need You and "your" Two Hands to continue the great work Lions do in the Community, here, and around the world. If you have a few hours to spare each week, please join a Lions Club in your area, you will find it rewarding and sometimes it will bring a 'tear or two to your eyes".

    Pictured is DG Colin Heap of District 201W1 with one of the Cat buses
