Pride of Lions helps he­roes

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

AN en­tourage of su­per­heroes on mo­torised scoot­ers rolled into Wood­man Point this month on their jour­ney to fight chil­dren’s can­cer.

The Su­perkids Su­per­heroes is an an­nual 10day scooter ride from Bridgetown to the Perth’s Chil­dren Hos­pi­tal to fundraise for The Kids Can­cer Project.

Now in its third year, the event was cre­ated for Bridgetown eight-yearold De­clan Kane, who lost his bat­tle with neu­rob­las­toma last year.

The Lions Club of Jan­dakot Lakes re­plen­ished the su­per­heroes with din­ner and break­fast at Wood­man Point Dis­cov­ery Park be­fore they set off for the last leg of their jour­ney to Perth Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal.

Club sec­re­tary Stephen Berry said they were happy to help out the cause in a small way.

“Club mem­bers were grate­ful for be­ing able to con­tribute by pro­vid­ing meals for the fundrais­ers of such a worth­while cause,” he said.

“We are vol­un­teers and en­joy fundrais­ing, but it is when we can be in­volved in some small way in this type of project that we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate how well off we are.”
