Allan Drew And The Lions Club
Allan Drew has been an active Lions Club member for 20 years, and many of his funeral directors are members of Lions Clubs as well.
Allan originally joined the Kellyville Lions Club and has served as that Club's President, Vice President and Fundraising Director.
In 2008, Allan was elected as the Charter President of the Sydney Executive Business Lions Club. This was a new initiative that sought to bring together leading business figures for the purpose of helping the community, networking and social enjoyment. The Sydney Executive Business Lions Club is still growing and has recently been hailed as a success by Lions International as a new concept in growing awareness and interest in Lions Clubs activities.
Allan's involvement in the Lions also played an important part in the success of the 2010 International Lions Convention, which was held in Sydney. Allan acted as the Marshall for the Parade of Nations, working closely with government and business leaders to make the Convention such a wonderful event for all who attended.

Allan has also been a tireless supporter of the Lions Recycle For Sight programme. This worthy cause asks people to donate unused eye-glasses so that they can be distributed to parts of the developing world where access to eye-glasses and optometrist services is out of the reach of many people. A donated pair of eye-glasses is literally a life changing gift to the people in communities around not only Australia but also South-East Asia. So far, Allan and his funeral directors have collected more than 4,000 glasses.
More information on the Lions Club is available.
Allan looks forward to supporting the activities of his fellow Lions for many years to come.
