Lithgow Lions Club held an afternoon barbecue on Saturday, April 27 at Bill Evans Workshop to recognise the sponsors of their new yellow storage trailer.
It was another community service project supported by many Lithgow businesses.
Lithgow Lions president John Edwards thanked all the sponsors for their generous support.
The new trailer was paid for by sponsors and the raw trailer was donated along with wheels, shelving, locks, electrical work, mechanical work, paint work and signage.
As a result none of the cost was met directly by the Lithgow Lions Club.
This continues to allow Lithgow Lions to donate all funds collected from the public to be distributed to local and Lions Australia charities and non profit causes. Thus no funds are held back for administration costs.
The supporting sponsors included Wayne Dick Furniture removals, Welch's Highway Smash Repairs, Lithgow Bolts and Bearings, Lithgow Brake Pro, Lithgow Industrial Printing, Lithgow Auto Wreckers, Lithgow Fire Protection, Graham Martin, Lithgow Engineering and Gary Dick.
Being recognised recently as a top 100 Lions Club in the world, for service reported to Lions International, the club will be even better equipped to maintain this amazing ranking.
Programs in the Lithgow area supported by Lions include Cullen Bullen Speedway, Football Club, Lithgow Show, Family Fun Days, Australia Day, Walk & Talk, Youth Days, Land Care and Local school programs which include sponsorship of students to Camp LICOLA, VIVO, vision & hearing camps.
As well as these assistance has also been given to Bush Fire and Drought relief and special projects such as Save Sight, Drug Awareness, BlazeAid, Childhood Cancer Research, Prostrate Cancer, Starlight Foundation and World Vision.
With no deductions for administration one hundred per cent of all money collected from the public goes to the specific cause. $30,000 has been distributed this Lions year.
