Our main fundraising source is a prize wheel which we operate at fairs and fetes which raises funds to meet our commitments to various Lions Foundations and community projects.

The sale of Lions Christmas Cakes is one of our major activities and we supply approximately 500 cakes in Christmas hampers to one local business.

We are also involved in the Lions Youth of the Year Quest. The 2008 Club winner was Ditza Teng (pictured) who went on to be the State Winner for WA.

We have also assisted a local family with the provision of an electric bed for their daughter Lydia who suffers from lissencephaly, or smooth brain, a rare condition of the brain that has left her unable to move, sit, walk, eat or even swallow her own saliva.

A picture of the family with the electric bed is shown below curtesy of the Eastern Suburbs Reporter who printed an article on August 7, 2007 about Lydia.

Ballajura Lions in conjunction with Phil Britten, a Bali bomb survivor, have over the past twelve months conducted talks at a number of Lions functions to raise funds with the intention of buying an ambulance for a clinic near Kuta, Bali. Due to problems associated in transporting the ambulance to Bali it was decided that the funds raised would be best utilised at the Royal Perth Hospital Burns Unit where a number of Australians and Balinese have been treated since the bombing.

Pictured is Dr Fiona Wood (Australian of the Year 2005) receiving the cheque for just over $9,000 from Phil Britten.
