Lions reconnect business’s power
GAYNDAH Lions Club has rewarded two businesses for their community spirit and service.
Neil Sadler, owner of Gayndah Sparky Services, recently reconnected the power at Lions’ member Henry Harman’s orchard.
Mr Harman’s power was disconnected as a result of the 2013 flood and reconnection of power was delayed until the bats, which had taken up residence, were relocated.
Mr Sadler’s cheque for about $2300 was supplied by a grant from the Australian Lions Foundation.
Blue Care representative Melinda McIntyre accepted a $2600 cheque to purchase a Niki syringe pump which is used in palliative care or to manage persistent pain syndromes.
Ms McIntyre said: “It gives people comfort, and can be used in people’s homes.”
Families appreciated being able to care for family members at home, and needed assistance to manage pain symptoms, she said.
The cheques were presented by Lions Club Zone Chairman Bruce Serisier at last week’s Gayndah Lions Club meeting.
