Club funds could grow

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

The Lions Club of Mata­mata is look­ing for ap­pli­ca­tions from or­gan­i­sa­tions in­ter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing and ben­e­fit­ing from its an­nual fer­tiliser drive pro­ject.

Ap­pli­cants are re­quired to pro­vide up to 30 ve­hi­cles and peo­ple power for de­liv­ery of the prod­ucts for the Septem­ber event. Lions would con­sider the drive be­ing shared be­tween var­i­ous groups.

Last year the Pohlen Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion Trust and the Mata­mata Col­lege rugby and net­ball teams re­ceived $ 5000 each, which went to­wards the hos­pi­tal’s new wing and to help the sports teams com­plete their tours. Pro­ject com­mit­tee chair­man Ralph Gore said groups could ex­pect to earn a sim­i­lar amount this year. The fundraiser also raised $2000 for the West­pac res­cue he­li­copter.

The groups sold 650 bags of Dal­tons en­riched com­post, three tonnes of lime, 2.5 tonnes of gen­eral fer­tiliser, a tonne of dolomite and a tonne of blood and bone door-to-door in Mata­mata.
