Tamborine Village Lions Club News for November 2022

Christmas Carols Are Coming!

Fundraising Sausage Sizzles  

As usual Tamborine Village Lions ran their markets on the first Sunday of October. During October a fundraising sausage sizzle was held at Bunnings Bethania.  The weather wasn’t wonderful but the day was fun and raised valuable moneys to fund donations. Unfortunately our other fundraising event for the month, the RTCB Bikes  was cancelled.

Tamborine Village Lions Donations

The Tamborine Village Lions Club has now voted to support the Quota Club by allocating funds to their Christmas Hamper programme. It was also decided to support another Hunger Project in Sri Lanka. We will keep you posted of the details.
