As a parting gift of their fundraising efforts, the Ladies’ Lions Auxiliary their refunding funds of $2000 to Meal on Wheels which help members of the community.

Lions’ Ladies Auxiliary President Ena Brown said the Meals on Wheels building was built by the Lions members in 1978, with the registered builder and Lions member John Wrench in charge of the building aspect of the project.

“The Meals on Wheels service has been an asset to the community since then,” Ms Brown said.

“It allows the elderly and sometimes the infirm, to stay in their homes longer.”

Chinchilla Meals on Wheels Treasurer Alison Butterworth said the support is good to have because it means that it means the help can be extended to clients who don’t have government help.

“We have approximately 30 clients and deliver around 500 meals on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday,” she said.

“The donation will help us to continue to provide those meals and will keep the cost of them down to affordable prices.”

“Donations are always appreciated.”
