Service From the Heart

Lions are a family like no other. And with our hearts united in service, we will lift up our communities all over the world. Because in times of great need, only a greater passion for service can make the world a better place for all people.



Operation Flinders celebrates 33 years of transforming the lives of young people. Operation Flinders has another reason to celebrate – on Exercise 2 in late June, Operation Flinders will see their 10,000th participant take part in the core 8-day program on Yankaninna Station. The 10,000th young person also represents the dozens of staff, hundreds of supporters and thousands of volunteers who are vital to this milestone.

The Foundation thanks everyone who has been involved with our journey and your commitment and contribution to the Foundation.

Above David Wark, CEO of Operation Flinders has a message he would like to share with all. 


His story begins with his birth on the 13th June 2023 at ALHD Breeding Centre to mother Poppy”.

His training began within 8 weeks of being in the centre. Victor was exposed to wearing a collar, being brushed, having his nails trimmed, ears cleaned and being handled from a very young age. To succeed in our world he has been exposed to sounds at very low levels and increased over time. He has slowly been introduced to the outside world in the puppy play area at ALHD to freely investigate, manipulate and interact with small and safe o stables. Crate training has been introduced to ensure Victor is conditioned to going in and out of the crate by choice and not being scared of the door being closed.

On Tuesday 8th August was an exciting day when Victor went into his foster home. The foster carer came to ALHD training centre to collect Victor which took just over an hour as Mary from the Puppy Team and Laura from the Medical Alert team needed to go over the care and training of Victor with Pam Victor’s foster carer. It was lovely seeing the excitement when Pam  met Victor for the first time.

Thank you to everyone involved with ALHD for all the work you do with these beautiful puppies. Watch this space for updates of pictures and information on Victor. We will all be lining up for puppy cuddles…💕💕🐾

Thank you Australian Lions Hearing Dogs and Foster Pam for all the work you do with Victor…what a little star he is.

Club BBQ January 2024

Victor Harbor & Port Elliot Lions held their annual Club BBQ dinner on the 23rd January 2024 at Kent Reserve.

Our Club BBQ trailer does a great job with three grills to cook on and a great serving area. The BBQ trailer is used at all our events and was purposely built by  Lion Merv Mortimer for club use. Thank you Merv we are taking good care of it.

The day was very hot but by 5pm the temperature had dropped and the evening was beautiful and barmy.

We all enjoyed a wonderful selection of salads and sweets prepared by members and a wonderful selection of meats from Indulgent meats at Port Elliot…always beautiful thank you guys. The club uses Indulgent meats for all our events, their products never disappoint.
