Prostate Cancer Screening Clinic

On the 24th April 2017 the club will be holding a PSA Clinic in the Trinity Centre, Trinity Avenue, Llandudno. This is a free clinic for any men who fall into the "at risk" age group of 45 to 70 years old.

It's Only a Blood Test!

During the clinic a simple blood test will be taken and sent for analysis. The club will never known the individuals result of the test but a letter will be sent from the lab giving them the rest as a traffic light system. Green means all clear. Amber and Red means you need to get a referral from your GP. From previous clinics it is known that 10 percent of those attending will get a letter telling them to get a referral. Of those 10 percent half will have cancer. But, by getting this early notification and early medical treatment the possibility of saving your life is increased.

We are not here to scare people. We want to possibility save your life. 

The club is raising the funds to run this clinic by organising various fund raising events. On August 18th 2016 the club had a charity golf competition. Over 70 individuals took part in a stableford match. This competition raised just over £1,000.

On the 14th September a group of Lions, family and friends will take part in a zip wire challenge at the world's largest zip wire in Bethesda, North Wales. 

Plant a Million Trees

The International President Wing-Kun Tam is challenging Lions around the world to plant one million trees this year to demonstrate the strength of our global network. The Lions club of Llandudno are taking part in the campaign and in conjunction with Maesdu Golf Club have purchased 420 tree

from the Woodland Trust. The trees being planted are part of a range to commemorate the Queens Diamond Jubilee.

The trees were planted on February 19th from 10:30am. Over a hundred volunteers from not only the Lions Club but members of the Maesdu Golf Club help plant the first 150 saplings.

Lion John Vaughan, district Environmental Officer, (left) said a few words about the Plant a Millions trees project and that so far over six million trees have been planted world wide.

 

 

 

The Lions Club of Llandudno's current President Lion Dennis Pearson (far right in the group photo) along with Lions Jeff Duckenfield and Trevor Freeman coordinated the event with Maesdu GC grounds staff. At the planting were Maesdu GC Chairman Richard Trigg, President David Sawyer, Men's Captain Tony Jones and Ladies Captain (not in the group) Audrey Henderson. Our very own District Governor Beryl Roberts (forth from the left) was thrilled with the turn out even though the weather turned cold and there was a sleet shower.

The Town Mayor Councillor Greg Robins and the Town's Miss Alice (Nicole Thompson) also planted trees for us.

Opposite members of Llandudno Lions enjoy a cup of hot soup and a bread roll sheltering in front of the ground keepers sheds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Message In A Wallet

Over the past few years the Lions Club of Llandudno have been promoting Message In A Bottle (MIAB). This has been very successful and we continue to get requests for bottles. A development from MIAB is Message In A Wallet.

Based on exactly the same principle of having medical information made available in a convenient place. So that in the event of an emergency any one such as a paramedic can have that important information to hand. With the bottle it was kept a fridge. With the wallet - you keep it in your pocket or purse.

Wallets are available from the Lions Charity Shop in Madoc Street, Llandudno

Schools Litter Project

Over the past five years the Lions Club of Llandudno have been involved with four local primary schools in a Keep Our School Tidy project. Lion John Boyle and Lion Ken Hunt make regular school visits to see what  the children have been doing the keep there playgrounds and gardens tidy and what environmental projects they have adopted. During the 2011-2012 school year, Ysgol Craig Y Don will join the project.

During Lion John and Ken's visit the schools are awarded stars for their achievements. Towards the end of the school year the club president visits the schools and presents them with a prize cheque of money which will go towards an environmental project at the school.

Here are some pictures of the work the schools have been doing in recent years. It constantly amazes us the work the children and the staff of all the schools put into their projects. The children do take pride in them. Most of the schools have "School Councils" which are run by the children themselves. It is these Councils that decide on which project  the money we award to the school will be used on.

Recycling

Environmental Officer, has organised a printer ink cartridge recycling service in the Lions Shop. The shop is located in Madoc Street, Llandudno, and if you have any brand of ink cartridges (apart from Epsom) you can drop them off in a special collection box.

 

The cartridges are sent away and the clubs receives payment which goes into the clubs Fundraising account. These funds help the Lions support the community and give donations to local charities and good causes.

Also in the shop you can drop off any of the following which either help us to raise money or gets redistributed to other charities.

  • Old mobile phones
  • Used stamps
  • Laser copier / printer toner cartridges
  • Old spectacles

The shop will also take unwanted items such as clothes, books, CD, DVD, tapes, records, kitchen and household items which can be resold through the shop. Unfortunately we cannot accept electrical items. Large items such as furniture is a little difficult for us to accept but we may be able to find a suitable home for items of furniture so please speak to a member of the volunteer staff first.
