Matamata Chronicle - - News - By ABBY BROWN

The Pohlen Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion Trust and the Mata­mata Col­lege tour­ing sports teams have both re­ceived a fund­ing boost.

Each group re­ceived $5000 from the Mata­mata Lions on Novem­ber 12.

The funds were raised through the Lions fer­tiliser drive that took place on Septem­ber 6.

Car­loads of vol­un­teers from Pohlen Hos­pi­tal, Mata­mata Col­lege and Mata­mata Lions sold 650 bags of Dal­tons en­riched com­post, three tonnes of lime which was do­nated by Wel­leans, 2.5 tonnes of gen­eral fer­tiliser, a tonne of dolomite and a tonne of blood and bone, Lions mem­ber Trevor Pot­ter said.

The fundraiser also raised $2000 for the West­pac res­cue he­li­copter, he said.
