November is the month that traditionally raises awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men's suicide. Movember has its origins traced back to Adelaide in 1999 where a group of young men who are reputed to have coined the term "Movember" and the idea of growing moustaches for charity throughout the month of November. The group started with 80 men from Adelaide and soon became a nationwide phenomenon.
Cairns Barrier Reef Lions Club is joining the Movember theme this year by organising a movie night at the Smithfield cinemas and donating all proceeds to the Lions Prostate Cancer Research. The movie is Goodbye Christopher Robin and follows the journey of the author Alan Alexander Milne who wrote the timely classic Winnie the Pooh who named the main character after his son Christopher Robin Milne and the cartoon characters after the toys his son played with.
Tickets can be purchased by contacting Norm on 0430 030 357 or Rachel on 0487 687 191, costing $25.00 for the movie and either a beverage (wine or beer) or a midi combo (small drink and popcorn). Please feel free to share this event with your friends.
Catering for an event is one of our clubs specialties. Our club catered for the Edmonton PCYC event who hosted the ''Deadly 3'' Indigenous Basketball Carnival. For more information please contact us in our contact link.
Cairns Barrier Reef Lions Club always has many activities to help our local community, raise funds and have fun.
