FROM THE EDITOR

The Tribune (NZ) - - WELCOME -

It’s hard not to be im­pressed by the on­go­ing com­mitt­ment lo­cal Lions Clubs have to their wider com­mu­nity.

Our cover story is about ef­forts by the com­bined Lions Clubs NZ Mo­biltiy Foun­da­tion to raise money to pro­vide life-chang­ing equip­ment for chil­dren who have cere­bral palsy and other sim­i­lar con­di­tions.

The 10-10-10 all-ages gold coin fam­ily ori­ented open walk this Satur­day from the Fitzher­bert Bridge at 10am is a sim­ple ac­tiv­ity that could bring about huge re­sults.

A Lions fundraiser that has achieved much in the last 22 years, is the an­nual Coast to Coast mo­tor­cy­cle ride. In that time Woodville lions have raised in ex­cess of $160,000 for Palmer­ston North’s Res­cue He­li­copter ser­vice.

This year all prof­its from the De­cem­ber 12 ride will help the Palmer­ston North Res­cue He­li­copter Trust pur­chase a new Zoll de­fib­ril­la­tor.

A lit­tle ef­fort over a long time pro­duces great re­sults.
