Bar­bie for char­ity

The Cobram Courier - - OUR COMMUNITY -

Co­bram Lions Club’s reg­u­lar Log Cabin Mar­ket has a spe­cial cause this Satur­day.

All funds raised will be do­nated to Lions Big­gest BBQ, an an­nual event un­der­taken by Lions clubs across the coun­try.

Money raised by the bar­be­cue will fund child­hood cancer re­search in labs across Aus­tralia.

Aus­tralian Lions Cancer Re­search Foun­da­tion trustee Peter Lamb said he was deeply moved by the con­tin­ued yearly ef­forts of Lions volunteers.

‘‘It never ceases to amaze me what Aussies can do when they work to­gether,’’ Mr Lamb said.

‘‘Who would have thought the good old Aussie bar­bie could have been used to help Lions raise over $10 mil­lion for child­hood cancer re­search?’’

Lions Log Cabin Mar­ket is on this Satur­day from 8 am in Fed­er­a­tion Park with lots of fun ac­tiv­i­ties for all.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic are in­vited to browse the stalls, en­joy a snack and do­nate for a wor­thy cause.
