From District Data Compliance Officer
It is that time of the year where clubs are confirming their President and Secretaies for 2019/20. To ensure that their details are included in the MD Directory it is important that the new officers complete a GDPR Consent form. So if you were not a club President, Secretary or a District officer for the year 2018/19 can you please complete this form and return to the Data Complance Officer as soon as possible.

From District Secretary Lion David Pope
Dear all
On Thursday LCI implemented a new system called “MyLion”, it is through this portal that you gain access to the Lions Reporting System MyLCI.
To access MyLCI you MUST NOW REGISTER as a new user, your previous logon details WILL NOT WORK. Part of the creation process requires LCI to email you with a code to activate your account – THIS MAY WELLL DROP INTO YOUR JUNK / SPAM EMAIL FOLDER – please check before requesting a new one or escalating a problem. You also need to confirm your date of birth – due to an earlier version of MyLCI only requiring Year of Birth, MyLCI has defaulted everyones date of birth (unless you had changed it to your correct one) to 1st January and then your year of birth, therefore if your real date of birth is not recognised, please try 1st January and then your year of birth.
In the 1st instance please contact your Club President / Secretary / Treasurer, I issued a comprehensive set of instructions how to logon onto MyLion on Thursday evening.
Any further problems, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Yours in Lionism
Lion David Pope, District Secretary

And Finally from MDHQ Via our LCIF Officer, Lion Susan Wharton  See poster here
Dear LCIF Officers Vijay, Alan, Graham, Alan, Ann, Alan, Sue, Ian, Roy, Jackie, David and Harry,
Updated report from LCIF on Cyclone Idai
Please find below an update received from Lions Clubs International Foundation.
LCIF received many inquiries from Lion leaders with genuine concern for the victims of Cyclone Idai in Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe. I hope you will find this update
useful as you communicate about the impact of Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF).
Malawi, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe are in a state of national emergency and are leading a humanitarian response in their respective countries, supported by humanitarian partners. Thousands of people are missing, hundreds reported dead, and search and rescue efforts are ongoing.  The government and authorities report the need for emergency relief items including tents, food, medicines, and helicopters for rescue operations and delivery of assistance.  Due to the extensive damage to roads from extremely heavy rains, it has been
difficult to assist affected people.  To assist local Lions in their relief efforts, LCIF has awarded three grants; two emergency grants of US $10,000 and a Major Catastrophe Grant of US $50,000 to provide resources such as maize flour, clothing, tents, blankets, and other needed relief items in Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe; with more grants that may follow.
Thank you to all those Lions Clubs who have responded so far, your continuing support is appreciated.
Yours in Lionism
Lion Andy Pemberton
MD LCIF Officer
