Recognition for Club Members at the 2018 District Midyear Conference

8 club members attended the 2018 District 410C Midyear Conference, the last Midyear Conference the District will hold before it merges with District 410B and part of District 410D to form a new District, 410E.

The Midyear was excellent on all fronts – the Conference was well-run and informative and the theme evening was one of the best events the District has hosted for many years.

Lion President Avril Hobbs was the worthy recipient of a certificate of appreciation from the International Lions President Gudrun Yngvadottir in recognition of her sterling and tireless work as the District’s Global Service Team Coordinator, assisting every club and Lion to serve people in need as effectively as possible. Very few of the 1.5 million Lions around the world are honoured with recognition from the International President and the club is justly proud of LP Avril’s efforts.

The club also received the Ian Murray Project Public Relations award, presented to the club that achieves the best media coverage for a specific project. This award is the result of constant social and traditional media engagement by members of the club, whose efforts are greatly appreciated.

Lion Grant Hobbs donned the District’s Melvin the Lion suit and made a great impact, demonstrating Melvin’s skill at the Baby Shark Challenge. Here’s Melvin doing the challenge:

In all the club had a fantastic time at the Midyear Conference and are grateful to DG Lyn Botha and the entire Ramsgate Lions Club for putting on a truly excellent weekend.

2018 Lions Christmas Cakes Now Available

The delicious 1kg Lions Christmas Cakes are now available. They’ve been carefully baked to the recipe that has been used for many years, so you can be sure of their quality and taste.

They will cost R110 this year for a 1kg uniced Christmas fruit cake, which contains no alcohol. As with all funds raised by any Lions club, all the proceeds of the sale of Lions Christmas Cakes will be used directly for charitable projects.

Not only will you be getting a truly delicious Christmas cake for your R100, you’ll be making an invaluable charitable contribution as well.

If you would like to purchase some cakes from the North Durban Club, please leave a message on this page, use our contact page or contact one of our members directly. The cakes will also be available from our stall at the Golden Hours market, every Sunday from 10:30-14:00.  The market is held at the Golden Hours market grounds, on the corner of Radar and Uitsig Roads, Durban North (a block behind the Hypermarket).

If you’re not in Durban North/La Lucia/Umhlanga or the surrounding areas, your local Lions club will almost certainly be selling cakes as well.
