During the past four decades, many volunteer members have contibuted to a variety of worthwhile projects. Dedicated club members have donated funds for medical research groups to help children with cancer,autism, cystic fybrosis, hearing loss and eye sight issues.
In the local area, Oatley Lions have supported many community groups, including scouts, State Emergency Services (SES), schools and others. Major projects inlcuded the initial funding for the Multi-Purpose Room at Oatley Public School, a specially fitted vehicle for a children with cerebral palsy, and a $25,000 grant to the St George Medical Research Centre at St George Hospital.
Each year the club's major fund raising activity, the Oatley Village Festival raises around $38,000 for community projects. Over the past 16 years, the Harley Davidson motor cyclists have raised over $40,000 at the festival for children's cancer research.
Members have raised funds from the sale of Lions Christmas cakes, Lions Mints, raffles and proceeds from the Oatley Village Festival. Friends of Lions and past members are most welcome to join us for this special event and to share their Lions stories and experiences.
Oatley Lions Club members wish to convey their appreciation to both past club members, friends of Lions, sponsors and the general community for the incredible support over four decades. Georges River Council has provided considerable support which has been greatly appreciated. Local Members (Mark Coure MP Oatley) and David Coleman MP (Banks), and their predecessors, have also provided much needed assitance, particularly in relation to grant funding.
