Successful year for service clubs

With this past week having been National Volunteers Week, it was fitting that both Waiuku Lions and Rotary held their annual awards and changeover evenings.
It was fantastic to see so many of our local volunteers and organisations recognised for the outstanding contributions they make within the community.
Outgoing Lions president Barry Gibbon reported on a busy and successful year in which Waiuku Lions were able to donate a total of $47,400, shared amongst youth, elderly and national and regional organisations.
Likewise Rotary president Stephen Shepherd recognised the outstanding contributions made by club members with $26,254 being donated to a wide range of organisations and individuals throughout the year.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
