Five Cents for Five Months campaign launches again in Kyabram.April 30, 2014 3:05am
Kyabram Lions Club members Laurie McCarthy and Murray Maxwell are seeking community support for this year's 'Five cents for five months' campaign.
Kyabram Lions Club is once again running its ‘Five cents for five months’ campaign after the success of its 2012 fundraiser.
Two years ago the campaign raised $3262.20 for Cancer Council of Victoria’s research into children’s cancer and this time the club will be donating proceeds to a variety of local charitable organisations and good causes around the district.
Lions Club member Laurie McCarthy said he hoped the community supported the fundraiser as well as before.
‘‘We believe Kyabram Lions Club was the first in Victoria to run the five cents campaign and people have been asking when we’re going to do it again, which has been really positive to hear,’’ he said.
‘‘On their own, five cent pieces won’t buy much, but when you have a lot of people all donating them they can really help.
‘‘We’re very grateful to everyone who has already agreed to take a box or tin and anyone else interested can contact us to get one, or if they’ve got a lot of coins and can’t get out to put them in a box somewhere we’ll come round and collect them.
‘‘We would also like to thank Peter Fry for providing the collection boxes.’’
This year’s campaign begins tomorrow and as the name implies, will run for the next five months.
The club will also be grateful for any donations bigger than five cent coins.
If you would like a collection box or tin to site in a prominent spot at your workplace, club or even at home, phone Lions Club members and ‘Five cents for five months’ campaign organisers Laurie McCarthy on 5852
