Seymour Health chief executive Chris McDonnell accepting the cheque on behalf of Seymour Health from Seymour-Goulburn Lions Club president Heather Dunn.
Seymour-Goulburn Lions Club held its annual Changeover Dinner recently which acknowledged the work undertaken over the past 12 months and introduced the board for the coming year.
In her president’s speech, Heather Dunn spoke of the range of projects the club had undertaken including their major fundraisers with the Labour Day Market, run with the support of Seymour Apex, and the Oaks Day luncheon, run in partnership with the Seymour unit of the Cancer Council of Victoria.
These projects, with other smaller fundraising activities throughout the year, enabled the Club to distribute more than $13 000 to local, Australian and international projects. The dinner provided the opportunity to present a cheque to Seymour Health chief executive Chris McDonnell for the new Chemotherapy and Dialysis Unit, and a cheque to SES for the valuable work they do for the local community.
Several milestones were also acknowledged with 15-year membership awards presented to Bett Roworth and Bronwyn Allen and 10-year awards to Linda Johns and Carol Smith.
