Lions club hosts a free sausage sizzle
Woy Woy Peninsula Lions Club is one of the first Lions Clubs nationally to take advantage the offer of a paint retailer to host its sausage sizzles.
The club offered a free sausage sizzle at the Haymes Paint West Gosford store and in return a $500 donation.
District governor Ms Glenys Francis and the Australian Lions Foundation's grants chairperson Mr Ken Hallam were pictured receiving the cheque from West Gosford Haymes Paint store manager Nick.
Behind them are Woy Woy club members including Mr Ian Taylor and club president Mr Greg Head.
Across Australia, in addition to reimbursing Lions for sausage sizzle costs, Haymes has made a donation of $25,500 to the Australian Lions Foundation disaster relief fund.
The fund provides Lions Clubs across Australia with the ability to quickly react in times of need.
"Every dollar donated to Australian Lions Foundation goes towards helping Lions Clubs support their communities in times of need and through Lions' incredible network of over 1200 clubs you can be confident it's distributed quickly and to those who need it most," said Mr Hallam.
"Over $4.6 million was raised and distributed in the recent Australian Lions Foundation National Bushfire Appeal.
"But the support from Lions did not stop there.
"Over the past two years, even through a health pandemic, Lions volunteers have continued to support those affected and are focusing on helping communities rebuild."
