The Blockhouse Bay Lions Club Chartered in 1977

Our first project sent a young lady to England for surgery on a rare bowel complaint, accompanied by a surgeon who learnt the skills for future operations in New Zealand .
Since then many projects have benefited the local community such as:

°Bought first inflatable rescue craft for the Manukau Coastguard, saving many lives in that Harbour.

°Added further to the safety of boaties by providing a radio beacon on the Manukau Heads. °On shore, purchased a community police car to aid local law enforcement . °A fitness trail was built in Craigavon Park to help maintain the health Blockhouse Bay residents. °Purchased a bus for the aged at Powley House to provide outings. °Postural drainage beds for civilian maimed. °Christmas parties and outings for the senior citizens . °Firewood distribution to pensioners, beach cleanups and fundraising sausage sizzles and of course the Telethons. °Diabetes testing and health caravan. °Annual Concert in the Park.°Youth is our concern. For years our Leos club provided guidance and social activities for many teenagers, although at present in recess a revival is planned. Every year our members host students from overseas, lasting friendships have been made with Japan, Finland, the Americas and Italy. Local youth has been sponsored on Outward Bound and Spirit of Adventure expeditions. Last year a student we sponsored from Lynfield College did well in 1999 Lions-Thomas Cook National Young Speechmaker contest and in 2000 our entrant Nicola Helmink won the third place nationwide. °Our "Las Vegas Fun Nights" have raised $100 000s for sports clubs, youth groups, and schools beside providing a great nights entertainment.

°Helping eradicate preventable blindness. recycling used spectacles, to Lions Clubs Int. "Sight First",

The secret of the success of Lions is the friendship and bonds set up between 1.4 million men and women, in thousands of clubs worldwide. From these networks profitable associations can arise. Blockhouse Bay Lions, partners, friends and vistors meet for Dinner on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, often with an interesting guest speaker. We also visit other clubs, conventions, enjoy entertainment outings. car rallies, trips and besides helping the community support our own members.
We are now seeking Lions from a new generation who care and can enjoy themselves..
