Message from your District Governor Lion Alan Good.

District 105sw DG's Team

Summer is nearly over and the weather has taken a very autumn feel to it. I hope all of you have been able to have some great events and are now looking towards autumn, and dare I say Christmas. Only 16 shopping weekends to go!

Sitting at home on a decidedly wet bank holiday Monday, it reminded me of the floods that we had in early August last year and particularly the devastation in the Cornwall area around the Scorrier area. Does not seem like a year has passed.

We had our first Cabinet meeting in early August and although we covered a lot if issues and information passed on, I let down the officers who were there in letting the meeting run too long. I promise I will do better next time and can let you know that you can cancel your bed and breakfast
accommodation for the next Cabinet meeting.
Can I also say it was wonderful to have a couple of youth exchange students attend for a short while during Cabinet meeting and thanks go to Peter Bryant who brought them along. I hope they enjoyed their interview.

We as Lions do so much for our Communities and the world and have many requests for help. I Hope you don’t mind me mentioning a couple that need our support. LIBRA, Lions International Blood Research Appeal, is one of our own. This is an appeal that is ongoing and needs your support.
Professor Mufti from Kings commented: ‘The ongoing commitment from LIBRA is vital as we rely on funding to move the development of new treatments forward. Our long term goal is to become one of the top blood sciences institutes in the world.’ Professor Farzin Farzaneh added:
‘With funding from LIBRA we will be able to develop our existing Rayne Cell Therapy Suite, making it an ideal area to study the vaccine and also create other blood cancer treatments’. If you would like to make a donation to LIBRA’s Giving 4 Growth Campaign in aid of the Hematology
Department at King’s please visit www.libralionscharity.org

Lions is in the name.

With all the death and destruction in the media from the warring factions fighting, it is easy to overlook a natural disaster like the earthquake that struck the Yunnan Province of China early in August. It is estimated that nearly 600 people have died and more than 25,500 homes completely
destroyed. Once again, Lions Clubs International Foundation immediately awarded a Major Catastrophe Grant allowing Lions in the affected areas to immediately begin providing assistance by providing food, water, medicine, blankets and other necessities. Many of our fellow Lions have been
directly impacted by this disaster so I encourage you to consider making a donation to the Foundation for disaster relief. Donations are Melvin Jones Fellowship eligible and can make a real difference in times of need.

Last but not least is the Lions Roadshow. I have arranged Roadshows for Somerset (09th September 2014). Devon (11th September2014). Unfortunately, I have not been successful in arranging one for Cornwall due to venue problems, although I hope to for early 2015. The venues are Somerset:
The Admiral’s Landing, The Marina, Bridgewater, TA6 3EX. Devon: The Okehampton Conservative Club, Okehampton, EX20 1DS. Both will be starting at 7:30 and will be interactive sessions with the DG, Membership and Leadership District officers, a guest speaker and a question and answer session.
The information has been sent to your club presidents and is open to ALL Lions to attend. I hope Lion David Fitzpatrick does not mind, but I intercepted an email he sent to his club members: ‘ This is the first time any District Governor has come into the Zones (With the exception of formal club visits) on an informal basis to listen and learn from individual members on a first hand basis. Let’s show our new DG that we are proactive and open to new ideas. We too can learn from this roadshow’. The roadshow will only be as good as you make them, so come along and give it a go.
Fellow Lions: the future is bright
District Governor Lion Alan

Redruth Fun Day 2014 (27 photos) ... See MoreSee Less

13 years old Jade Exell from Redruth is the latest recipient of the Camborne Redruth & District Lions Club Youth Achievement award.

Jade began to learn to swim at the age of just six months. Over the years Jade completed all the swimming levels and was then given the choice of synchronised swimming or joining the Carn Brea Swimming club. Jade, having a competitive nature, chose swimming.

She has been swimming with Carn Brea Helston Swimming Club for five years and has been competing in swimming galas from the age of nine.

Over the past five years Jade has progressed through 4 separate squads to finally be a part of the Senior Performance squad.

In 2012 Jade’s attitude towards swimming and her team spirit was rewarded when she was made Junior Team Captain, a position she still holds today. Jade encourages and supports the younger swimmers and is liked and respected by her peers.

Although Jade will admit she is not the fastest sprint swimmer in her age group she does excel in distance events and holds the club records for the 200m (12yrs), 400m (12yrs), 800m (12yrs) and 200m Sprint (13yrs).

She recently represented her club in the 1500m at an open meet in Plymouth Leander Life Centre where she was the only girl from the club to take part and was the youngest ever to represent in this event.

Jade is ranked 11th fastest swimmer in this distance in her age group in England (long course) and is ranked 3rd in Cornwall. She is also the fastest 13 year old girl in Cornwall over 800m (short course) and is ranked second in her age group over 400m.

Lion President Paul said that these achievements have not come easy to Jade .It is a testament to her drive and commitment to her chosen sport that she trains 5 nights a week to maintain her own high standards thus causing her to miss out on a lot of social activities with her friends. Jade also helps her parents with the care of her disabled sister Amie.
Lion Youth Officer Neil Heatcote said that he had no hesitation in recommending Jade to the Club and that it was a unanimous decision to award Jade with the Clubs Youth Achievement Certificate and a £50 voucher to mark her achievements over the past years.

Redruth Ladies + Camborne & Redruth Lions raise money to bring Redruth's first defibrillator to Regal Bar.

For those of you who don't know, a defibrillator is a device which can save lives. If someone has had a suspected heart attack, this device will monitor the heart and decide if the patient needs a shock to restart the heart.

The device is available from the Regal bar in Redruth.

The Camborne & Redruth Lions Club would like to thank the Redruth Ladies Darts teams for all their efforts in raising the money to make this possible. We would also like to thank the Regal Cinema staff for agreeing to look after the device.
