Help­ing our dis­as­ter-af­fected neigh­bours

Chinchilla News - - LIFE -

WE BE­GIN by con­grat­u­lat­ing the or­gan­is­ers of A Day Out With Dad event held last Satur­day.

By all ac­counts the day was well sup­ported with 28 fam­i­lies there and 45 chil­dren.

The Lions Club of Chinchilla is proud to have been a spon­sor.

This week, our club made a do­na­tion to the Lions Aus­tralia Ap­peal for the bush­fire vic­tims in the south and the flood vic­tims of the north.

We sim­ply could not help our neigh­bours in dis­tress if it were not for the on­go­ing sup­port of the com­mu­nity of Chinchilla in our fundrais­ing ef­forts at our RSL Satur­day raf­fles, our an­nual char­ity auc­tion and var­i­ous projects in be­tween.

April 21 is our An­nual Lions Char­ity Auc­tion which, over the

40 years of its ex­is­tence, has raised more than $100,000.

Ex­cept for ad­ver­tis­ing ex­penses, 100 per cent of all pro­ceeds are used for lo­cal char­i­ta­ble pur­poses, even our honorary auc­tion­eers do­nate their ser­vices.

Do­na­tions of good saleable items are still be­ing ac­cepted – please give Bruce a call on 0429 365 322 or Lind­say on 0427 656 201.

Mean­while it’s also been a busy week for the Lions Club of Wan­doan as they took their merry-go-round to the Wan­doan Races last Satur­day.

The Wan­doan Lions Club has a proud his­tory span­ning 44 years. How­ever, any ser­vice club is only as strong as its mem­ber­ship and the Lions are look­ing for your help – they need more hands.

The Wan­doan Lions are invit­ing you to a com­pli­men­tary bar­be­cue at the Wan­doan Cul­tural Cen­tre on Thurs­day, April 5, at 6.30pm. Please call lion John Er­bacher on

0427 274 473 and let him know if you’re at­tend­ing.
