The Rainbow Beach SES crew give a thumbs up for the donation of the stands
SES Sandbagging Stands
Earlier in the year it was brought to the Lions Club’s attention that there was a shortage of sandbagging stands at the Cooloola Coast SES Groups.
Knowing that volunteers put in many hours during times of disaster and where there is need, there was no hesitation from members to fund three new stands so both the Rainbow Beach and Tin Can Bay SES had two stands each. These stands make it safer, quicker and easier to fill sandbags so they are a welcome addition.
Mental Health Week Awareness
Lions members gave a tree in Tin Can Bay a blue makeover to raise awareness of Qld Mental Health Week in October. You might have seen the wool-wrapped branches on Groper Street decorated with different crafts and posters.
It’s OK not to be OK but you’re not alone. Take time to make an appointment with your GP or go to www.qldmentalhealthweek.org.au for more contacts.
Clean Up Australia for Recycling Week
The Lions Club of Tin Can Bay is hosting a virtual Clean Up Australia Day event from Monday 7th to Wednesday 9th of November to coincide with Planet Ark Recycling Week. You can register online (or via hardcopy by appointment) and adopt a site in the local area to do a clean-up at your leisure and drop all collected items back for sorting at the drop-off point.
If you, your friends, or community group would like to be involved then jump online at www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au/join-a-clean-up and find the Tin Can Bay Lions event or call the organiser to arrange a time to sign on in person. All participants must be signed on and nominate their designated area for data collection. Gloves and bags can be supplied.
Clean Up Australia inspires and empowers communities to clean up, fix up, and conserve our environment and every little bit helps so get involved! For more information, please contact 0411 218 254.
