Lions club calls for help from public

THE Kangaroo Flat Lions Club is in need of new locations to host its sausage sizzles to raise money for firewood which is distributed to people in need. 

Vice-president Russell Molesworth said the club had been hosting barbecues at the front of Kangaroo Flat IGA but was looking for new locations. 

He said money raised was used to buy firewood and donated to elderly people and disadvantaged families.

He said the club also received monetary donations. 

"We have taken on the job of delivering wood and we work through UnitingCare," he said. 

"The club is looking for new places where it can hold a sausage sizzle.

"We have IGA but we are lucky to hold a barbecue there once a month."

He said simple pleasures, such as lighting a fire for warmth in winter, made a big difference to the lives of people in need. 

Mr Molesworth said the club was determined to serve its community and buying and delivering firewood was just one of its many functions. 

"It is just our thing in life. We are always doing something for someone in some way," he said. 

"The club supported a young girl (Ashleigh Hutchins) to get to the World Dwarf Games in Michigan."

Anyone who wants to help can contact the club's president Heather Gartside on 5447 0596.
