Out and About with the Golden Valley Keperra Lions Club

Terrific Trivia

In the last edition of The Hills Echo, you may have read about our ‘Trivia Night’ at the Hills Community Centre on Saturday 8th February, in aid of the Lions Bushfire Appeal.

We were overwhelmed by the response from the Hills Community, as we sold out of tickets for the event within a week. Additionally, over 150 community members attended and dug deep to aid the bushfire victims.

Thank you to trivia night guru Andrew McMicking, who  travelled from his home in northern New South Wales and donated his time to run this brilliant night.

Many local businesses, State Member Mark Furner, along with his staff, Moreton Bay Councilor Matt Constance and Tangalooma Island Resort, supported the event with donations, lucky door and raffle prizes. Over $3,300 was raised that will be used to purchase 22,000 litre poly water tanks that will be fully installed and filled with drinking water.

In November, we sent $3,000 of drinking water to Clifton on the Darling Downs, a town that had run out of water for the essentials. Following that, in December we sent $3,000 to the Lions Bushfire Appeal and Lions Clubs International Foundation forming part of the $500,000 already donated to communities to provide the essentials to bushfire victims in towns across Australia.

We love our Hills community, they are giving, generous people. They support their Local Lions Clubs because they know that every dollar we raise goes directly to the cause – without any loss to administration fees.               

Of course, we always need more volunteers to keep our programs going – people who have some time to give back to their community. If you have some spare time please contact me, Paul Ryan – GVK Lions cottontrees@bigpond.com or 0409 688 675.
