Somerville's funeral directors support a range of local, national and international programs as we believe in giving back to the community.
We are members of your local social group, sporting club and church and are dedicated to being sensitive to the communities we serve. We hope you’ll take the time to get to know those who we support.
Lions Recycle for Sight
Somerville Funerals assists this programme through the placement and promotion of eye glasses collection boxes in our funeral homes and around our communities.
The Lions are one of the world's best known community organisations and the Recycle for Sight Program is one of their most important initiatives.
For the Recycle for Sight program, eye glasses are collected, repaired and cleaned, and then sent to communities in the developing world where they are distributed to people who otherwise would have no access to them. A simple pair of eye glasses can literally have a life changing effect for the recipient.
More information about the Lions and their programs are available on the official website.
Somerville Funerals supports Legacy's fund-raising activities. We support Legacy's volunteers with coping with grief information, and give our customary care and support to the families Legacy supports whenever it is needed.
Legacy is one of Australia's best regarded community organisations. Established in 1923, the organisation supports the families of deceased veterans from all branches of Australia's Armed Forces.
Made up of volunteers, Legacy today is dedicated to caring for and assisting 115,000 widows as well as 1,900 children and dependants with a disability. More information is available on Legacy's website.
