First Firewood Collection 2018
Dependent on Fire Danger Level
We, as with all Lions Clubs in the world, return 100% of all net money collected back to our community.
Our club administration expenses come from us - not from you.
All our projects that raise money are for the Tokoroa community and has been used in the past for local sports people, the Hamilton Lions Cancer Lodge, Ronald McDonald Retreat, Local Schools, YMCA summer camp, RDA, Blind Foundation, St Johns, LCIF and so on.
We will send you a list at the end of each Lions year; the money is well used.
We are a registered charity - registration number CC 28627 - our accounts are visible there.
