  • $500 donation: Lions Club contributes to Emma''s fundraising mission

    Emma Hogan has been busily collecting donations towards her ï½Walk to Cure Diabetes''. After her diagnosis of type 1 diabetes at age seven, the Glenmore Park student has been campaigning to find a cure for the condition as a youth ambassador for Junior Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

    When Charlie Kennaway from the Cambridge Park Lions Club read about Emma''s fundraising in the Weekender he knew that hers was the perfect cause to support ï½This is somebody, in the local area, who has decided to get off her backside and raise some money because she is a diabetic. Giving back to the community is important to us,ï½ he said.
    Emma was very excited to receive the $500 donation on Monday, November 5, at Kingswood Sports Club.

  • Donation to Burn Rubber Burn/PCYC Penrith

    BURN Rubber Burn, a rehabilitation exercise program based at Penrith PCYC, will soon have a new set of parallel bars after receiving $1000 from Cambridge Park Lions Club.

    The program aims to help people with physical disabilities improve their fitness, health and ability to function independently.

    Burn Rubber Burn manager Simone Robinson said regular exercise eased the burden on family members by helping to avoid secondary diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

    She said there were a number of valuable uses for the parallel bars but their primary function would be to help people walk again.

    The bars would be particularly useful for those recovering from stroke, spinal or brain injuries.

    A lot of members at Penrith are walkers but not constant walkers and if they were to walk with their crutches down the street and someone bumped them they would fall over, Ms Robinson said.

    We need to teach them to walk safely again.

    She said many patients could only stand on one leg immediately after a stroke, and the bars would also serve as a much-needed confidence boost from those wanting to stand on their own two feet again.

    She said she was extremely excited to receive the grant and thanked Lions committee member and stroke survivor Ken Mason for bringing the program to the club''''''''''''''''s attention.

    We are very excited to receive the grant. We rely solely on the generosity of the community, she said
