Maitland Local Lions Clubs

Lions AustraliaThe annual Maitland Ball in the Mall is held each January on the Australia Day weekend.  It is organised and run by the collective efforts of all the region’s Lions Clubs with the aim of raising funds for local charities.  The charities benefiting from the Ball in the Mall are selected by each of the participating Lions Clubs.

We were fortunate to be selected by the Maitland Lions Club as their nominated charity for 2010.  The other participating Lions Clubs are the Kurri Kurri Lions, the Rutherford Lionesses, the Rutherford Lions, the East Maitland Lions and the East Maitland/Beresfield Lionesses.

A presentation dinner hosted by the East Maitland/Beresfield Lionesses was held recently with the Mayor of Maitland, Peter Blackmore, being the keynote speaker.  Zelda and Malcolm Storey represented our Centre and accepted a cheque of $472 from each of the participating Lions Clubs.

It was great to continue our link with Maitland Lions.  We won their hearts after a large group of them visited our Centre one Saturday and watched our volunteer team and riders doing what they do best.  Having seen our Centre they asked if the money could go towards constructing an “all weather” shelter at the front of the arena where people with a disability, particularly wheelies, could get out of their vehicle and into a chair without being drenched when it rains.    We look forward to continuing our relationship in 2011 with the Maitland Lions as the project eventually becomes a reality.
