Representatives from local organisations gathered on Friday, June 25, to each receive a donation from the Tully Branch of the Lions Club, presented to them by its incoming President, Michael Ottone.

The Tully Branch of the Lions Club donated a total of $21,433.00 to forty recipients in the 2020-2021 financial year.  Of the recipients, nineteen were to local organisations or individuals, and the balance to causes with community benefit, such as the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Lions Hearing Dogs, UQ Stroke Treatment Research, and the Lions Medical Research Foundation, amongst others.  Further afield, the Tully Branch also gave generously to the Lions Clubs International Foundation and the Zimbabwe Sewing Project.

Also included amongst the donations this financial year, were a defibrillator for the Tully Support Centre, Tully High School Bursaries (over two years), equipment for Tully Hospital, and a generous donation to the ALF Flood Appeal.

Present last Friday were local representatives from St Vincent de Paul, the Tully Support Centre, Tully State School, Tully Show Society, Tully School Chaplaincy, Tully Branch of the Red Cross, Tully Nursing Home, Blue Care and Angel Care.

Tully can be truly proud of the generosity of its local branch of the Lions Club and its commitment to the community.
