Tamahere Lions are appealing for community support for barbecue facilities it is developing in the Tamahere Park.
The ground work and floor slab have been completed and the Lions are now raising funds for the rest of the project in the central Tamahere recreation area.
The plan is for a double electric barbecue and two sets of seating under an attractive weatherproof shelter.
“Through generous support from a corporate donor we are well on our way to start the shelter, but we are not quite there yet,” says Lions secretary Susan McHugh.
“We are appealing to members of the Tamahere community to support our efforts to fund the project, in order to complete the barbecue facility this year.”
Anyone willing to make a contribution toward the barbecue is invited to contact Peter Simcock (0212453065) or Sue Fookes (078566622 evenings).
Tamahere Lions Club was formed in 2015, currently has 25 members, and raises funds in several ways including assisting at sporting events, and organising the regular Best Artisan Market.
Funds raised have enabled activities such as the installation of AEDs in Matangi and in Hillcrest High School, supported charitable organisations, funded individual pursuits such as entries to the Young Speechmakers Competition, and contributed to costs for participation in international sporting events.
