Stratford Lions Club

VIC, Australia, District 201V3

Projects District 201V3 Convention OCTOBER 27th - 29th 2017


Just recently Stratford Lions Club in Victoria, Australia was entertained by a guest speaker, Ray Longmuir, originally from Friockheim in Scotland, who told us of his journey through brain cancer to his survival against the odds. He has proved to be an inspiration to all who meet him and we were amazed to hear him tell us that in May 2019, providing the cancer does not return, he plans to ride his motorcycle from the southern tip of Tasmania to his hometown in Scotland, raising money for the “Cure Brain Cancer Foundation” along the way. Stratford Lions Club is proud to be a partner in his fund raising efforts. Another major supporter of this venture is Benjamin Currie, a past runner up and regular competitor in the British Superbike Championships. Ben will wear the Brain Cancer colours and logo on his helmet and will offer whatever support he can to Lions International during the two seasons leading up to Ray’s ride.

The first event on the B.S. C. will be held at the Donington Park Speedway on the weekend of March 31 through to April 2nd.
