Lions roar their support for LifeFlight

THE Wooroolin Lions Club have completed their disbursements of funds this week after their president travelled to Toowoomba to present a cheque to the LifeFlight Foundation.

The $4000 cheque was the last part of the Wooroolin Lions disbursement program that totalled $12,392 for the 2017/2018 year.

"LifeFlight perform hundreds of missions to the South Burnett every year,” Wooroolin Lions' Dave Goddard said.

"Wooroolin Lions are very proud to support them in their service to the community.”

Other disbursements included installing a community cardiac defibrillator at the Grand Hotel in Wooroolin, and providing new lockers for the crew at the Endeavour Kitchen in Kingaroy.

Wooroolin State School was the recipient of $1445 for projects including a student's educative garden.

Wooroolin Lions raise funds through a weekly raffle as well as staging events such as show and shines and car boot sales.

Additional funds are raised through barbecues and catering for clearing sales, and through selling the iconic Lions Club Christmas cakes and puddings.

The club also benefits through donations from generous individuals and organisations.
