Moyola Aged Care has already raised $16700 since it launched its bus fundraising appeal last week.

The Lions Club of Tatura kicked off the appeal with a $5000 donation.

Tatura Lions president Bill Milner said the Lions Club was pleased to donate to this worthy cause.

‘‘Lions has always supported grass-roots local projects and when we heard that Moyola was fundraising for a bus we thought that this was a perfect project for us to help out with,’’ Mr Milner said.

Moyola Aged Care chief executive officer Polly Devine said she was grateful for the support Moyola had received so far.

‘‘We thank all the individuals, community groups and businesses who have donated to us for our bus,’’ Ms Devine said.

‘‘It is only with such support from our community that we will be able to achieve this goal.

‘‘We particularly thank Rodney Printers who kindly donated our wonderful sign that we will be updating as funds increase.’’

So far the appeal has raised $16700 with funds donated from the following individuals, clubs and organisations:

In memory of Pat Crawford $3000, Generations Church $2000, Lions Club of Tatura $5000, Catholic Women’s League Tatura Branch $100, John and Trish Pleitner $1000, Robert and Shirley Gray $2000, John and Mary Gibson $1000, Rodney Branch of the CWA $500, Moyola Lodge Auxillary $2000, and Alan Clement $100.
