Club president Sandy Maddocks said members
were pleased to again provide the service to shop-
pers in Renmark.
“We were pleased with the support given by our
local community/shoppers in this fundraising pro-
ject, which resulted in a substantial amount being
raised for the RFDS,” she said.
“Thanks also to the centre management for sup-
plying much of the wrapping paper.”
RFDS Riverland president Alan Eckermann said
the funds raised by the Lions Club will be “grate-
fully received” and used towards the maintenance
and purchase of planes.
