Lake Tekapo Lions

This small club of just 24 members is proud of the volunteering efforts of its members in raising significant funds that benefit the community each year. Over the past year the Lake Tekapo Lions have contributed generously towards worldwide disasters and local causes. At their July meeting the Lions of the Lake Tekapo Club moved to contribute a further sum of $21 000.

In particular they have:

  • pledged $5000 to the Lake Tekapo Bright Stars Charitable Trust for the establishment of a kindergarten in Lake Tekapo and
  • gifted $4000 to the Ian Simpson Support Fund to help in the purchasing of special wheelchair and mobility equipment for Ian.

They are also very pleased to donate to the following:

  • Lloyd Morgan Lions Club Charitable Trust

  • Camp Quality
  • Guide Dogs for the Blind
  • South Canterbury Hospice
  • Ranui House
