The HANTSPORT & DISTRICT LIONS CLUB along with other Lions Clubs in Nova Scotia is involved in a USED SLEEP APNEA EQUIPMENT PROGRAM in Association with the Lung Association of Nova Scotia to collect USED SLEEP APNEA EQUIPMENT such as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) machines that individuals no longer need. These machines would be then turned over to the Lung Association where they would be refurbished and donated to assist individuals with sleep apnea by providing them free of cost to those who cannot afford them by the Lung Association of Nova Scotia. Do you have a USED SLEEP APNEA EQUIPMENT you no longer need and wish to donate? If so, please contact any member of the Hantsport & District Lions Club.

Rockin The Vest

Lions club members come together in this humorous hip hop video.
The lyrics focus on what wearing the yellow Lions club vest means to the community. Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That’s because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world’s largest service club organization.
