The lions of Madang are roaring - join our pride

The lions are roaringAMANDA YEOU

MOST people define charity as voluntary alms giving but I see it as giving yourself as an instrument of love and service to the poor and suffering population.

Last weekend, the Lions Club in Madang growled for charity as many members and other participants enthusiastically took part in a walkathon with the theme ‘Walk for Life’.

The walkers were staff and students of Divine Word University and at seven o’clock they gathered in front of the Visitors and Cultural Bureau’s Haus Tumbuna on the Modilon Road.

We began walking from Laiwaden Oval into Town, proceeded through the streets of Kalibobo Drive and finished at Tusbab beach.

After refreshments, the club’s executives extended their thanks to the participants and the members for taking part.

I learnt that the walkathon was not only to raise funds for charitable causes, but also to promote a ‘Safe Madang’ as the town is becoming extremely dangerous.

Senior members of the Lions Club are encouraging more youths to participate and apply for club membership as the club needs young members to carry on the work of the club and benefit the nation.
