    WA mens Goalball team wins Silver

    Nikolas Maxwell, who we gave a sponsorship too earlier in the year to go to America as part of the Australian youth team, was part of the WA men''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s Goalball team on the weekend. They did extremely well taking the Silver Medal. Nicolas scored a lot of the goals to get them to the finals.
    Goalball is relatively new to WA formed in 2010. Players wear blindfolds so they are all equal. The aim is to throw a 1.25kg ball across a tactile court to the other team who try to stop a goal been scored in the net behind them. It must be played in silence so the players can hear the bells within the ball whilst it skims across the court.

    BALLAJURA LIONS ASSIST LOCAL BOY

    Nikolas Maxwell is a 16 year old vision impaired student from Alexander Heights. Nikolas has been selected to represent Australia in the 2013 Australian Boys Goalball team in America. He is the only WA boy to be selected for the 7 player team.
    Goalball is relatively new to WA formed in 2010. Players wear blindfolds so they are all equal. The aim is to throw a 1.25kg ball across a tactile court to the other team who try to stop a goal been scored in the net behind them. It must be played in silence so the players can hear the bells within the ball whilst it skims across the court.
    Goalball WA is a not-for-profit organisation that provides the blind and vision-impaired community access to a sporting program valuing inclusion, participation, skills development and competitive pathways.
    Through Nikolas’s involvement in this sport he has developed into a wonder confident young man in his short time of playing this game.
    Nikolas has represented WA on two previous occasions and he has also been selected to play in the men’s Paralympic Preparation Programme for the upcoming Rio Paralympics.
    Ballajura Lions assisted with a small donation towards Nikolas’s trip to America. Ballajura Lions members wish him well in following his dreams and hope to see him back from America with a medal.
    Ballajura Lions Club meets every 1st and 3rd Monday in each month. The club is actively involved in the community raising funds for those in need.

    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
