The Gisborne and District Lions Club are very impressed by the level of community support to its various fund raising efforts during this latest period adversely impacted by COVID-19.
The Lions Club received great support to its appeal aimed at helping those in need. A special thank you goes to Brett Vernon from Macedon Ranges Glass for his significant contribution to this appeal.
Further, the Lions Club once again received a great response from individuals, families and businesses in sponsoring Lions Christmas Cakes which were included in the Foodbank Christmas hampers provided to those in need in our area. The Lions Club provided 75 Christmas Cakes for this purpose. The Club wishes to acknowledge the following who contributed to this cause: J Barnes; K & M Bryce; L Burr; C & H Byham; D & L Cole; S & R Coulson; V & H Cyrulo; S de Castro; D Devine; S Elizabeth; Gatens family; P & K Hardy; J J Jones; M McInnes; H Simmonds; R Thorpe; R & M Walker; Street Ryan & Assoc P/L-Regional Development Consultants; and Macedon Ranges Glass.
The Club also wishes to thank the community for buying Lions Christmas Cakes from local businesses including UFS Hardys Chemist; Gisborne Newsagency; Gisborne Medical Centre; Bendigo Bank, National Australia Bank; Commonwealth Bank of Australia; and Macedon Newsagent and Post Office. Finally, the Club wishes to acknowledge Gisborne Self Storage's significant contribution to the Lions Christmas Cake Program.
