COMMUNITY RECOGNITION STATEMENT - West Maitland Centennial Lions Fundraiser

Ms JENNY AITCHISON (Maitland): I would like to acknowledge the West Maitland Centennial Lions who recently raised $1,700 in support of people affected by Ovarian Cancer at their 'Host a Teal Tea, High Tea' event held on April 24th at Ducks in the Field, Duckenfield.

I was fortunate enough to attend the event, which was meticulously organised by West Maitland Lions Member and known local fundraising volunteer Wilma Lilley. Wilma did an outstanding job at organising the event, arranging raffle prizes and bric-a-brac for sale on the day, in addition to acquiring donation funds from local Maitland businesses, that all went towards the final fundraising total.

Following the success of this event Wilma has told me there is already a guest list for the next West Maitland Centennial Lions fundraising high tea, which she says will most likely have a floral theme. Congratulations, to Wilma and the West Maitland Centennial Lions on the success of the event. If this event is anything to go by the next will be just as successful.
