DG's June report
Hello Lions, Lionesses, Leos & Friends.
Welcome to this my last address and newsletter to you the members of Lions Clubs International within District 105C and readers in any of the other 12 Districts that make up this our great Family of Lions and Lions Clubs in the UK.
Before I go any further let me thank every one of those Lions and prospective Lions who attended our District Information and Training day on Sunday 19th May. You made it a great day, I understand from our feedback forms that everyone really enjoyed the day, and we met our objectives which were to have some fun, meet someone new, share something, and learn about Lions. Congratulations must also go to the organisers and facilitators without whom the day would not have been such a success.
DG Elect's June report
Since my last report, the main event for me has been the Multiple District Convention in Torquay. This was a memorable event, not just for me, but for the many hundreds of Lions and partners who attended. The event was very well supported and it was great to see so many friends from 105C.
District Governor’s Lady’s Appeal
Several of our Lions Clubs have told me that they did not know what Lioness Sylvia’s Appeal is for this year, so I will remind everyone. I know many have already given their support

Mexborough Supply Life Changes to 30 Schools
Thirty Life Changes packs have been provided to primary schools in South Yorkshire in an initiative run by Mexborough Lions that has attracted national attention. The club has broadened the appeal by attracting corporate sponsorship from an array of businesses in Mexborough and the neighbouring towns of Swinton, Denaby and Conisbrough.
To test the effectiveness of the Life Changes messages, Mexborough Lions designed a feedback form which has borne out the value to head teachers. Mexborough Lion Sheila Venables explains that the feedback provides another use when introducing the packs to new schools.
“What we don’t want is for Life Changes books to sit on shelves,” she said. “Seeing what other teachers say has been an important way in getting the concept across. The feedback shows how each school is using the book and the ways in which each has developed something of its own unique approach".
Feedback from the schools has been illuminating. “The Life Changes book has some very useful information and is a fantastic resource,” commented one school. “It contains practical information about the way children deal with grief and is very user-friendly".

Every Lion from a club in good standing can enter a photograph of his or her immediate surroundings into the club-level Lions Environmental Photo Contest.

These pages deal with various health issues which are tackled locally, nationally and internationally by Lions members.
Fundraising is only one aspect of tackling a problem. Lions International is organised not only to fundraise from those who are willing and able but to ensure that any aid is distributed fairly, efficently and to those most in need.
In many parts of the world, health issues contribute to the poverty of the people who live there and poverty prevents them from escaping those ills.

Knaresborough Gain New Sponsor for Bed Race
Knaresborough Lions have a new sponsor for this year's Great Knaresborough Bed Race, one of the largest community events held in the North of England. The new sponsor is Yorkshire Linen Company and, says club President Nigel Perry, the synergy is obvious. "P&G has switched its sponsorship to its Lenor brand and other sponsors are Piccadilly Motors, HACS, Belzona, GH Brooks and CNG. All are vital as without commercial support we would not be able to mount the event."

Leadership Development Needs Assessment
The Signature Projects are about to be launched. Are you ready?
Do you want to increase your membership?
The Signature Projects are part of a key membership drive!
Past International Director Phil Nathan explains:
"Our Signature on Our Community" Signature projects are not a new idea but they can easily be a legacy. Back in 2002 then International President K K Fukushima encouraged clubs to put a "stamp" on their community by doing something that everyone would recognise as a Lions "stamp". In MD105 we have so many varying "stamps"; it may be a Lions emblem made from flower bulbs planted in the local park or something as amazing as a hospice. No matter how big or small, many of our clubs have left their signature on their community.
