Wooroolin Lions president Dave Goddard travelled to Toowoomba recently to present the LifeFlight Foundation with a cheque for $4000.
The Foundation is the charity that supports the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopters that service the South Burnett almost daily.
The cheque came from Wooroolin Lions’ fundraising during 2017-18.
Dave said LifeFlight performed hundreds of missions to the South Burnett every year and Wooroolin Lions were very proud to support them in their service to the community.
The $4000 cheque was the last part of the Wooroolin Lions’ disbursement program,
The club distributed a total of $12,392.
It also supported the installation of a community cardiac defibrillator at the Grand Hotel in Wooroolin, new lockers for the crew at the Endeavour Kitchen in Kingaroy, and $1445 towards a students’ garden at Wooroolin State School.
Wooroolin Lions raises funds through a weekly raffle as well staging events such as show and shines and car boot sales.
Extra funds are raised through barbecues and catering for clearing sales, and through the sale of Lions Club Christmas cakes and puddings.
The club also benefits through donations from generous individuals and organisations.
