Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

TURN up and tee off for the Moss­man Lions Club’s big fundraiser this week­end at Moss­man Golf Club.

The an­nual Moss­man Lions Club Char­ity Golf Day aims to raise money for lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions, in­clud­ing KIND and Meals on Wheels. Moss­man Lions Club has a proud his­tory of sup­port­ing res­i­dents of the for­mer Dou­glas Shire that spans back to 1962.

Or­gan­ise a team of four to take part in the four-ball am­brose for a fun day out and a chance to give back to the com­mu­nity.

Lions Club mem­ber Sally Rea­son said it would be the char­ity’s ma­jor fundraiser for 2010, along with a trivia night held ear­lier in the year.

“We try to raise funds for our lo­cal char­i­ties, our lo­cal peo­ple, and mainly we help out se­nior cit­i­zens and youth projects,” she said.

Those in­clude a Moss­man Bowls Club lun­cheon for se­niors, a youth devel­op­ment com­pe­ti­tion, help­ing peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties and putting on bar­be­ques for in­di­vid­ual fundrais­ing projects.

“Our main goal is to help our lo­cal com­mu­nity through fundrais­ing and through do things for peo­ple,” Ms Rea­son said. “An­other thing we do ev­ery year is we go and clean up the cot­tages at Port Haven.

“It’s called the Moss­man Lions Club but we have a range of projects for the whole of the orig­i­nal Dou­glas shire plus we help out for na­tional emer­gen­cies but our fo­cus is on the Port Dou­glas re­gion.”

Ms Rea­son said she hoped past at­ten­dees would flock back to take part.

“It’s a fun day out for a good cause, you can meet new peo­ple and hope­fully (it will) en­cour­age peo­ple to join the Lions Club, we would love to get more peo­ple join.”

The club cur­rently has 17 mem­bers in the Dou­glas re­gion. En­try into Sun­day’s event, which kicks off at noon, costs $25 per player and in­cludes a bar­beque lunch.
