Help out the Whanga­mata¯ Lions for week­end

Coastal News - - Coastal News -

Do you have a spare hour to help the Whanga­mata¯ Lions on Fri­day?

The Whanga­mata¯ Lions Craft and Farm­ers Mar­ket this Labour Week­end prom­ises to be a big one, and mem­bers of the club could use a hand set­ting up on the day be­fore.

It is the 25th mar­ket hosted by the Lions and more than $100,000 has been given in do­na­tions to the com­mu­nity as a re­sult of fundrais­ing ef­forts over the years as hosts.

Or­gan­iser John Hare says it’s a big day for the vol­un­teers and they couldn’t do it with­out the ex­tra helpers who come to the fore.

“We call them Lions for the day, and they’re won­der­ful,” he says.

“We have a work­ing bee the day be­fore and to take it down. We get as­sis­tance from peo­ple just pop­ping in for an hour which is a huge help as it’s a big day for us.”

■ The Whanga­mata¯ Lions Craft and Farm­ers Mar­ket is on 8am to 2pm Satur­day 20 Oc­to­ber at the Whanga­mata¯ Memo­rial Hall.
