Volunteers Appreciation Dinner

Some 44 invited guests arrived at Technology Park Function Centre in Bentley on Tuesday November 17th 2020 to enjoy a 3 course meal with drinks to allow the Board of the Lions Cancer Institute to thank the volunteers who give much to ensure that the research and the screening events continue for the benefit of all West Australians.

All who attended the evening reported their enjoyment, Secretary Bill Crosthwaite was the master of ceremonies and carried out the role with expertise and as per the programme the Chairman Phil Chinnery gave a Report as did the Business Development Director Garry Irvine.

The Chairman made a number of presentations to volunteers who had contributed to our annual screenings – June Walker (Screener), PDG Colin Beauchamp, AM (Past Chairman and long time Screener) Colin’s wife Sue Goddard (Admin.), Fitz Cass from Kwik Kopy Canning Vale, Mary Austin (Screener), Liz Clarson (Admin), Robin & Peter Chinnery (Admin) , Meg Bradford-Seeley (Screener) and Trish Chinnery (Donor of a Defibrillator).

A highlight was the Presentation of a Progressive Melvin Jones Fellowship to PDG Neil Saunders for his excellent support over many years as Treasurer of the Institute, Neil continues his contribution in that role as well as other areas of administration as a Director. Neil’s contribution is enhanced by the support he has from Dot who also contributes to the work of the Institute.

The evening concluded with a few humorous stories around our visitations to regional and country areas  and around the raft of very interesting characters we get to see and help, the stories were most acceptable for the gathering that evening but of course remain a discreet distance from the readers of this article.

— Garry K Irvine, PR Director.

Big Day Out for Kids

By Social Events

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.
