The region's Lions clubs, spearheaded by Seymour Goulburn Lions, donated the funds for specialised play equipment at Seymour College.

An official handover of specialised play equipment occurred at the Special Campus of Seymour College last week.

The equipment was jointly funded by the Australian Lions Foundation and Lions Club of Seymour Goulburn supported by Lions Clubs of Seymour, Broadford, Marysville and district, Eildon, Nagambie and district and Kinglake.

About $14000 was raised and used to purchase equipment to enhance motor skills, agility and confidence in students with special needs.

Acting principal Gail Hardman and Lisa Ziems gratefully accepted the donation from Tony Benbow of the Australian Lions Foundation and Lions project co-ordinator Linda Johns.

Also present were representatives of the Lions Clubs of Seymour Goulburn and Broadford.

A number of the students enjoyed the equipment and the following morning tea.
