    All in the name of research

    At one of our dinner meetings Korinne Nicolas presented to our Club. She is doing her PhD and asked for volunteers to do Cognitive Ability testing for HMRI, at the John Hunter Hospital, for dementia and stroke research. So in October some of us went along, nobody told us we would look so handsome! More photos on our facebook page!

    Pambalong Reserve Tree Planting

    Still planting trees at Pambalong after seven years. It is estimated we have planted over 5,000 trees with an 80% survival rate. Magnificent progress, for which Jesmond Lions can feel justly proud for having been the moving force behind this endeavour.


  • Hunter Melanoma Foundation

    Hunter Melanoma Foundation
    Some years ago, proposed to our Club that we support the Hunter Melanoma Foundation. The project was adopted and still exists within our Club. Financial support is provided by the collection of 5c coins by Club members, which are then banked into our Activity A/c, and eventually our Treasurer will draw a cheque to send to the Foundation. In 2005 the club donated $5000 to the unit and this money was used to buy a camera and dermatoscopes to better detect and identify melanomas.
    Can you spare your 5c coins to add to this project. Why not put them aside so that when you have enough, simply pass them on to the Treasurer.
    One thing we all know is ... every little bit helps !!!
    Now that you know, don't you think you would like to help a little?
