NO KARORI LIONS KARNIVAL THIS YEAR

Several thousand people, young and old, normally enjoy this event, and the club is very conscious of the disappointment that will be felt by everyone who would have taken part - either as stall holders, or their customers - this year. Our apologies to you all!
We will, of course, continue with activities and events that can be safely held under the relevant "Traffic Light" rules in force at the time - so please look out for them so you can all continue to support the club and the various organisations and individuals in our community that we will be helping.

Please LOOK OUT FOR A NEW DATE - possibly in the new year

We are now approaching our target, but still need to raise about $50,000, so we've set up a Givealittle appeal page to help with this final push. Please visit the page and support the children of the Wellington Region and others who may be referred here, and pass on the link to all your friends.

Karori Lions recent E-Waste Recycling Day

Last Saturday we ran our twice-yearly e-waste drop off collection at the Karori Community Centre, which proved to be as popular as ever. While volumes were not markedly up, many customers were exceptionally generous with the donations they made in return for leaving their unwanted electronic goods with us. All net proceeds from Lions projects are returned to the community. A double whammy here was that the company ultimately receiving the goods was Recycling for Charity, who make a contribution to charities from their profits derived from refurbishing or recycling the goods (in a guaranteed data secure and environmentally sound manner).
Pictured: Some Karori Lions with the Recycling for Charity team gearing up for an avalanche of electronic waste and surplus goods.
