In recognition of the 50th anniversary of Lions Clubs of New Zealand, the Lloyd Morgan Lions Clubs Charitable Trust Board has announced its intention to award a Trust Fellowship in April 2005.

The Fellowship recipient’s research project may involve, but is not limited to, the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of health conditions. The monetary value of the Fellowship will be based on the nature of the application.

David Gault, Chairman of the Trust Evaluation Committee says, “The Fellowship recipient will be a person who has achieved pre-eminence in their particular field of expertise. The awarding of the Fellowship is a significant recognition by Lions Clubs New Zealand of that person’s merit, knowledge and qualifications and their potential to advance the welfare of New Zealanders.”

This is only the second Fellowship in the 25 year history of the Trust. The first was awarded in April 2000 to Dr. Roderick D MacLeod to celebrate the Trust’s 20th Anniversary.

Ron Lawrence, Chief Executive Officer, Lions Clubs New Zealand says “The Fellowship is a significant honour. In monetary terms it provides valuable recognition to an individual who has made a noteworthy contribution in his or her respective field.”

Lions Clubs in New Zealand

The first New Zealand Lions Club was formed in 1955 in Auckland. Now there are around 500 Clubs, and 12,700 members. Worldwide, the International Association of Lions Clubs has a membership of over 1.3 million in 192 countries and geographical areas.

The emphasis is on community service in all forms. Lions programmes serve the young and the aged, the disabled and the disadvantaged - anybody who has a need. Programmes are conducted locally, nationally and internationally. They include sight, conservation and work with the blind, citizenship services, hearing and speech action, programmes with the deaf, drug education, and environment, recreational, health and social services.

Lions' contributions to the development and care of New Zealand youth include living skills programmes, drug awareness, an international youth exchange programme, the national Young Speechmaker Contest and International Peace Poster Competition.

In 2005 Lions Clubs New Zealand will celebrate its 50th anniversary of service in New Zealand.
