The BBQ raised just over $800 for local projects.

This was one of the last BBQ’s that was allowed at the Bunnings sites as the regular event has since been stopped.

Upcoming projects for the Lions Club include books for the local Tea Gardens school, donations to the Children’s Charity 4WD Challenge, and Life Education for Schools 2020.

Life Education for Schools provides a specialist education service for preschool and primary age students.

The service delivers up to 16 unique modules about subjects such as drugs and alcohol, cybersafety, nutrition, lifestyle and respectful relationships.

The non-profit service has 44 mobile classrooms visiting schools across NSW to educate over 710,100 students, including pupils from Tea Gardens Primary School.

Also did you know that Lions regularly train in professional food handling to ensure food safety and best practice hygiene are followed in accordance with Australian and local government standards.

To help minimise risks due to COVID-19, Lions BBQs have been suspended until clear and safe as mentioned.

Updates will be provided by NOTA.
