Lantern Clubs

Download the Lantern Clubs Brochure in PDFEstablished in 1964, Lantern Clubs have now raised over $14 million to assist in the education of children with vision or hearing impairment. Whether they hold cake stalls or wine tasting evenings, coach trips or open garden days, Lantern Club members are full of innovative fundraising ideas.

Lantern Clubs offer members the chance to be enterprising in a fun social setting, and at the same time, allow them to contribute to the important work of RIDBC - Australia's largest independent special educator. There are 19 clubs throughout NSW, with a membership of over 1100. For more information, contact the Lantern Club Co-ordinator on 9872 0324.
