IGA store man­ager and owner Bruce Ma­honey: It’s about find­ing a cure for child­hood leukemia...

THE Lions Cord Blood Foun­da­tion is an or­gan­i­sa­tion ded­i­cated to find­ing a cure for child­hood leukemia.

Childers Lions Club has de­cided to run a fun raf­fle, the win­ning prize be­ing a three-minute gro­cery grab at the IGA su­per­mar­ket in Childers.

IGA store man­ager and owner Bruce Ma­honey said it was an hon­our to be asked to sup­port the raf­fle, as the money raised would be put to a great cause.

“It’s about find­ing a cure for child­hood leukemia,” Mr Ma­honey said.

Lions Club pres­i­dent Lachie McCon­nell said 50% of the money raised from the raf­fle would go di­rectly to the foun­da­tion and the other half would stay with the Childers Lions Club.

“I en­cour­age Childers to buy a raf­fle ticket, one lucky win­ner will have the chance to grab gro­ceries,” he said.

Tick­ets will be on sale out the front of IGA for the great three-minute gro­cery grab.
