While the original Lions Club of Bankstown was founded in the 1950s, it served the community for a long time before the original members could not serve anymore. This is when the Zone 6 Chairperson, Graham Estrich, from District 201N5 (the district to which this Lions club belongs) stepped in and coordinated with members of other Lions clubs in the hopes of recharging the club.
After a food drive organised in Bankstown Centro, not only did were the Lions able to collect more than $30,000 worth of non-perishable food items, but also many potential members made their interest to become Lions clear. Hence, after a couple of introductory meetings, the club was recharged and renamed as the Lions Club of Canterbury Bankstown. Thus, from an ageing club, a younger and more vibrant club was born.
The rejuvenated Lions Club is now ready to serve the community with big ideas, and you can be part of the movement. Contact us today to find out how.
