Members of the Bargara Lions are thanking the community for their support after raising $2000 for Cancer Council Queensland in May.
Member Glenys Prins said the organisation held multiple events last month which were well supported by the community and resulted in the fundraising success.
“There were three events held during May which included a barbecue at Palm Lakes Resort, a sausage sizzle at Bunnings and ‘The Biggest Morning Tea' at the Basin, Bargara,” she said.
“The money was raised by the sale of burgers, sausages, raffles and donations from the public.”
Glenys said the fundraising initiative meant something special to those involved.
“Many of our members have been touched by cancer in its various forms,” she said.
“Lions also support research into Children's Cancer and Prostrate Cancer.
“We wish to thank the community for their support”
Glenys said the fundraising wasn't the only activity Bargara Lions members were involved in, with plenty on the calendar for the next few months ahead.
She said the community was invited along to partake or to join the organisation.
“Every Thursday morning, Bargara Lions hold a free morning tea at Bargara,” she said.
“It is an opportunity for new residents to meet other residents and form friendships and exchange information.
“We also Recycle for Sight which means you can drop off your old glasses to Clear Optometry in Bauer Street and Bargara Lions will recycle them to various countries where people cannot afford glasses.
“You might also see our Bargara Lions Chip Van at various functions in the area with money raised used to support the many activities that we support.”
