The Coolum Lions are an exceptional community group that is always literally giving back, and they recently presented Coolum State High School with a cheque for $5,000 which will be used to help disadvantaged students get the most out of their schooling. Lion Doug Alford stated that they understood that no child should be left behind.  “It is of critical importance that the education of our children is fair, and we ensure that no child is disadvantaged.” Principal Troy Ascott was elated with the financial support. “This will go towards funding educational excursions, providing uniforms and assisting in funding learning resources for students with financial hardship. This support is crucial in providing a platform through which all of our students can succeed at the highest levels.  Thank you Lions Club – this level of support goes such a long way to enriching the lives of our students.” The Coolum Lions are ever present in the community and are always looking for new members, so if you would like to join a club that has been active in the community for over 40 years and make new friends, then please call Lion Doug on 0413 019078 for more information and be sure to support the Lions whenever you see them fundraising, knowing that their efforts are put back into the community.
