Interchange Outer East is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with five of the local clubs from Lions Australia.

Lions Australia is Australia’s largest service club with more than 1200 clubs in Australia and Papua New Guinea. The clubs are made up of ordinary people – friends, family, neighbours … who share the common belief that a community is what we make it. The list of projects and causes they support throughout the world is endless, from assisting a local individual to supporting life changing medical research. They have a saying “Where there is a need there is a Lion”. This time they will be giving their support to the families of children and young people with disabilities.

Last year local Lions clubs funded and ran Interchange Inner East’s first ever family camp at the Lion’s Licola Wilderness Village. It was such a huge success that they decided to extend the offer of a camp for families in 2017 at Licola, to Interchange Outer East. With an increasing number of IOE families registering to attend our current Family Camps, this will provide an extra opportunity for families to enjoy the valuable and much loved ‘Family Camp’ experience.

Lions Clubs of Forest Hill, Box Hill, Vermont, South Vermont and Park Orchards will be fundraising to help fund the camp, which is planned for November 2017. Over the coming months Lions will be busy raising funds via:

• A ‘Camp Recharge’ Trivia Night to be held on 22nd October at Ferntree Gully Bowls Club see event flyer
• Forest Hill Shopping Centre Christmas Stocking Raffle (19th – 25th November) proceeds
• Lions Club Christmas Cake sales

Please contact IOE’s Fundraising Officer, Katie Jacobson on 97858 5522 or email to:

• Purchase Trivia Night tickets
• Donate a Trivia Night prize
• Volunteer a few hours of time to help with the Christmas raffle and cake sales at Forest Hill

Thank you Lions, IOE appreciates your support and looks forward to working together with you in this partnership.
