Children's Mobility Foundation.

The Australian Lions Children’s Mobility Foundation provides specialised walkers to children with Cerebral Palsy and other similar disabilities. Started by David Hart in 1998 the foundation has enabled more than 1900 children to walk with the aid of these fabulous walkers. (see attached photo). Lions Clubs around Australia assist with funding and support for the family over many years as the child grows. Currently the cost of the walkers is around $12,000. The benefit to the children of being able to walk upright means they can be involved in sport, keep up with their peers and do many of the things other children do.

A major fundraiser is Walk for an Aussie Kid each year around September, however donations and bequests are always welcome at any time. For more information please see or contact our District Chair Bev McLennan at


Lions is a community service organisation! People join Lions because they want to use their intellect, creativity, commitment and enthusiasm to get things done plus they can enjoy the fellowship of new friends. You might want to start by being a Friend of Sandy Lions - help out occasionally, when you have time. This is where you can find out about the sorts of projects that your local Lions Club is doing.
