Lions re­con­nect busi­ness’s power

Central and North Burnett Times - - AROUND TOWN -

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.
