Bulahdelah Lions Club have continued with their fundraising efforts this month with the proceeds supporting the local community and areas further afield.
The October fundraisers include Driver Reviver duties at Browns Flat rest area over the long weekend and catering for the Wild Side Adventure Race and the Bulahdelah Hunting and Social Club dinner.
Lions Club President Roger Dixon told News Of The Area the funds raised go towards projects for the International Lions Fund, the Australian Lions Foundation and the local area.
“Some of the local projects include funds for the Bulahdelah Scouts, Cricket Club and the School Breakfast Club program, and the ongoing improvements to the Lions Park on the south side of the Myall River,” Mr Dixon said.
“Our latest project is to raise $200,000 to build a Community Activity Park for Bulahdelah,” he added.
Lion Arthur Baker said the Activity Park is to be constructed in the Mountain Park.
“It’s designed to bring together all members of the community including the youth, families, the elderly and disadvantaged,” Mr Baker said.
“We hope to incorporate a skateboard park, gentle exercise equipment for the more mature residents and upgrade the children’s play area to include a road network for younger children to play and learn the road rules.”
The Bulahdelah Lions Club meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.00pm at Bulahdelah Bowling Club.
“People interested in joining the Bulahdelah Lions or supporting their projects are always welcome,” Mr Dixon said.
