Ki­wicoast Lions’ an­nual Pig in a Bar­row raf­fle is on again.

The raf­fle was started by the Te Puke Lions club many years ago. It had be­come an an­nual event just be­fore Christ­mas and when there was talk of it dis­con­tin­u­ing when the club dis­banded, Te Puke Ki­wicoast Lions took it over. “Over the years we are en­cour­aged by the sup­port from the pub­lic,” says spokes­woman Barb van Selm. “We have pre­vi­ous win­ners of the raf­fle re­turn­ing to pur­chase tick­ets. Win­ners al­ways com­ment on how good the pork is and are es­pe­cially pleased to have our butcher cut the pig to their re­quire­ments.”

There is also the wheel­bar­row to keep and it comes filled with gro­ceries.

All pro­ceeds go to­wards help­ing the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“We have pur­posely kept the price of each ticket at $1 to make it af­ford­able for ev­ery­one.”

Look out for ticket sell­ers out­side Te Puke Post­shop on Tues­days, Wed­nes­days and Fri­days. The last day of ticket sales is De­cem­ber 8.
