Family Respite Camps – Please Consider Donating

Since 2016 the Lions Clubs of Park Orchards, Forest Hill, Vermont, Vermont South and Box Hill have raised funds to assist fund 7 family respite camps that have been held at Licola Wilderness Village (LWV)

On behalf of the Lions Club of Park Orchards, I would like your Lions Club to consider donating funds so two further camps can be run in 2020 to provide critical respite for up to 60 families with special needs children.

For the proposed camps in 2020, Lions Clubs will once again be partnering with Interchange Inner East (IIE) and Interchange Outer East (IOE). The cost of professionally qualified carers for each camp will be met by IIE and IOE.

Objective: To conduct two, 3-day camps in 2020, for families with children with special needs, at the LWV at Licola in eastern Victoria.

Any funds provided by Lions Clubs are only used to pay partially, or in full, invoices issued by LWV, which usually covers accommodation, meals and outdoor education staff.

If you have any questions, or are interested in volunteering, at one or more of the 2020 camps, please call or email Ian Sutton on 0439 344 607 ([email protected]) or Ian Abbey on 0418 371 552 (iandjab [email protected] )

Any funds being donated to assist 2020 Family Respite Camps should be credited to: Bendigo Bank Account, BSB 633-000, Account Number 155897473, in the name of “Park Orchards Lions Club Inc. Licola Special Needs Camp.”

Dates of the 2020 camps are: Friday 3 April to Sunday 5 April (IIE) and a Friday to a Sunday in November 2020, (IOE), – exact weekend to be finalised.
