Lions Cancer Institute received $10,000 Centenary Grant

By Association Life No Comments

Lions Cancer Institute received $10,000 Centenary Grant in support from Commonwealth Bank West Perth branch on 18 May 2018:

In celebration of a 100-year legacy of giving, Commonwealth Bank employees are giving $10 million to community organisations, with 1,000 Centenary Grants valued at $10,000 being distributed.
The Lions Cancer Institute is pictured receiving a Centenary Grant, with CommBank West Perth branch and employees having nominated it in recognition of the much needed services it provides to the local community.
Commonwealth Bank donated $10 million to the CommBank Foundation in celebration and recognition of 100 years of employee giving and this donation funded the Centenary Grants. More than 13,000 current and retired bank employees donate a portion of their income to the program, with Commonwealth Bank contributing up to $2m each year as well.

The inspiring and far reaching impact of the work undertaken by the Lions Cancer Institute was a crucial factor in it receiving the grant.
“We’re thrilled to be able to support organisations like the Lions Cancer Institute in the important work they do for our local community,” says Commonwealth Bank West Perth branch manager, Peter Plowman when presenting the cheque to Lions Cancer Institute Chairman, Lion Phil Chinnery.
Thanking Peter for the grant, Chairman Phil said the Lions Cancer Institute was very grateful for the support from the Commonwealth Bank Foundation, which will be used to maintain our Mobile Skin Cancer Screening activities throughout WA.

Tom Price Screening Event

By Screening Events No Comments

Screening team of Colin Beauchamp, Rob Fitzpatrick, Phil Chinnery and Paul Ripley worked hard today to screen 98 Tom Price residents.
This is after the team with June Walker in place of Rob screening 166 people at Newman over the weekend.

Great results in both towns, with many potential lives saved by early discovery of possibly life threatening lesions, which are subject to confirmation once checked by GP’s or cancer specialists.
Pictures below show the coach setup, the extra lengths we go to so young mothers can be screened, and the outlook from Mt Nameless over Tom Price that Rob drove us to in his brand new Landcruiser.

We discovered a cairn up there installed many years ago by the then Tom Price Lions to mark the highest point able to be driven to in WA!

2018 Annual General Meeting

By Association Life No Comments

The Lions Cancer Institute held its Annual General Meeting in October 2018 at the Royal Aero Club at Jandakot Airport.

There was quite good representation from Lions Clubs of both Districts, and we were pleased to have as special guests our PhD student, Tracey Seymour, and our new Patron Professor George Yeoh (both pictured) join us.

The business session went well and ,included reports from Chairman Lion Phil Chinnery, Treasurer PDG Neil Saunders, M D Screening Project Liaison Manager PDG Colin Beauchamp and Screening Operations Coordinator Lion John Osborne.

PhD student Tracey provided a presentation on the outcomes of the research she has just completed on finding new therapies to improve treatment of the most common, and fatal type of brain tumour, glioblastoma.

At the completion of the business session, Lion June Walker, a Director and one of our screeners, provided some humour to finish the evening by telling a story about how cold it was at night during a recent screening event at Tambellup. Apparently Colin and John suffered through the early hours on a frosty night, even using towels and every piece of spare clothing they had to try and stay warm. Real “brass monkey” weather!

Thanks to all that attended, and to June and the Jandakot Lakes Lions Club for providing the supper, and the Royal Aero Club for use of the meeting facilities.

The full Annual Report is now available for download here.

Big Day Out for Kids

By Social Events No Comments

Santa arrived with a big “Ho Ho Ho “ this year to spend time with the kids, their families and the wonderful Carers, to celebrate the Big Day Out for disadvantaged children. The Lions Cancer Institute proudly offers this event each year and together with volunteers from the Institute who assisted Santa, he shared gifts with every child who attended. Free ice creams and lollies were provided for their enjoyment as they settled into their seats to enjoy the free preview of the movie “ Elliot the Littlest Reindeer “

The Theatre in South Perth was again the venue and the coaches with their special cargo arrived with excited kids anticipating meeting Santa and smiling for the camera.
Thanks to the theatre staff who were most generous with their time and help on the day.

This annual event is proudly supported by the WA business community and we express our most grateful thanks for their donations.
