Lions pull out of run­ning Taka­pau FUN Chal­lenge

Bush Telegraph - - Norsewood’s Norway Day -

The Norse­wood and Taka­pau Lions Clubs say have with­draw from host­ing the Norse­wood to Taka­pau FUN Chal­lenge this year and in the fu­ture.

The clubs say they have en­joyed run­ning the event over the years and thanked ev­ery­one in the com­mu­nity for the sup­port shown for the event and the clubs.

The clubs say they feel that it is time to take a step back and will be look­ing to hand over the event to any in­ter­ested groups to con­tinue what has been a very suc­cess­ful event dur­ing its 12-year his­tory.

What started out as a so­cial get to­gether be­tween the neigh­bour­ing clubs quickly de­vel­oped into an an­nual fundraiser and last­ing part­ner­ship en­abling the Lions clubs to raise and dis­trib­ute funds within their lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties of ap­prox­i­mately $20,000.

The clubs say they are com­mit­ted to con­tin­u­ing their work in sup­port­ing the com­mu­nity and will be look­ing to un­der­take new ven­tures, the clubs say.

Ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est are wel­comed from any in­ter­ested par­ties to con­tinue the event in the Lions’ ab­sence.
