Successful 2015 Lions' Show

It was another successful Lions' Show this year, with R1,460.00 being raised for Second Chance Avian Rescue thanks to Doug & Angie Butcher; Margaret Jones, Vic & Kay Neilson, Herbert Osborne, Michelle Pearson, Andy Ruffle, Irma Smook and Willie & Wilna van Zyl.

''Booby'', the Red-footed Booby, was in attendance on the Saturday and certainly drew lots of interest. On Sunday, Michelle brought a sub-adult Swift Tern.

Many thanks go to the usual few members (and non for that matter) who made the effort to volunteer to man the stand.
Once again, we have to give a huge thanks to Herbert for constructing the stand. Thanks also to Barrie Willis who came along to help on Thursday morning.


  1. It was great being there with Herbie. When Michelle and the Booby arrived it made an immediate difference to our ability to draw people into conversation. Vic and Kay.

  2. Message from Michelle Pearson
    ''On behalf of Second Chance Avian Rescue, we would like to say a huge thank you to BirdLife Trogons Bird Club for assisting in raising much needed funds for our center at the Lions Show this weekend.''
