The Rainbow Region Dragon Boat Club (RRDBC) will have a new, 10-seater boat for competition training thanks to the combined effort of their own members, Lennox Head Lions Club and The Lions Northern NSW Community Trust.
The RRDBC made an application to Lennox Head Lions Club for financial support and that application received a positive response, but the amount required was a little more than the local club could donate.
Each year Lions clubs contribute money to The Lions Northern NSW Community Trust, which can then fund larger regional applications. So, Lennox Lions made a successful application to the Trust for a grant of $4000.00.
‘It was a great community effort that means The Rainbow Region Dragon Boat Club will be paddling their new boat by the end of the year,’ Janelle Gaggin, president of Lennox Head Lions club said.
