You can also order copies of the cookbook at the Open Day and proceeds from the raffle and cookbook sales will go back into our local community. While you’re there, place your orders for our famous Lions Christmas Cakes!

Do you have old spectacles, sunglasses or hearing aids lying around? Drop them off at our Open Day and Lions will recycle them to aid people in the Pacific Islands and other places with people in need.

Bring in your old money and foreign currency and Lions will redeem the obsolete cash to fund education programmes and activities for young disadvantaged Kiwi kids.
