Major Activity - Driver Reviver

One of the clubs major activities is the Driver Reviver project. The club runs this with the assistance of our Lioness club and a few volunteers.
The project operates every long weekend and each weekend in January.

The Lions Club in June donated a barcode reading m/c called the ID Mate Omni. The machine has an on board database of over 1 million barcodes, which are on virtually every product sold in stores today.
When the barcode is read by the m/c it tells the owner what the item is and in some cases provides additional information such as on CDs what the tracks are.
The reader cost the club $1,500 which was seen as a small amount of money considering the benefit it gives the blind user
