Club funds could grow
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.
writing must be made by July 30 to the secretary, Lions Club of Matamata, PO Box 59. The application must detail the organisation, vehicles and people for the project.
Trevor Potter, Bryan Rawiri, Kane Rawiri, Lady Margaret Spring and Murray Davidson were involved in last year’s Lions fertiliser drive.
