Barry J Palmer Fellowship

The Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation is delighted to announce the release of the Barry J Palmer Fellowship. 

The Barry J Palmer Fellow recognises outstanding support for Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundations vision of 100% survival for kids with cancer. A recipient of this fellowship will be recognised for being one of our ambassadors helping kids fulfil their right to a healthy life.

International President 2013-2014 Barry Palmer, of Berowra, NSW, Australia, was elected to serve as International President of The International Association of Lions Clubs at the associations 96th International Convention, held in Hamburg, 2013. In 2009 Barry was instrumental in MD201s national convention in Melbourne approving the establishment of ALCCRF. 

Barry was a founding trustee of ALCCRF and remains an enthusiastic supporter of the work ALCCRF undertakes to fund impactful world class research into childhood cancers.

The beautiful timber used to mount this fellowship is Acacia melanoxylon, commonly known as the Australian Blackwood. The Acacia species is native in eastern Australia with this particular specimen coming from Tasmania. Tasmania is often referred to as the "Island of Inspiration", owing to its large and relatively unspoiled natural environment.

Payments can be made over 2 years

Clubs can accrue donations made to the Foundation over a maximum of 2 years to achieve the purchase price of $2,000 for this prestigious award. 

Clubs will be required to notify our Treasurer at the time of a donation that it is a credit towards a BJPF 

Please note that proceeds of Lions Biggest BBQ can now be used for this purpose
