Joining forces for a good cause

STUDENTS at Sorell Primary School teamed up with the Sorell Lions Club to host a good old-fashioned sausage sizzle to raise funds for the Childhood Cancer Research Foundation.

Held annually, the barbecue was organised by members of the student representative council, with Lions Club members supplying sausages and helping with cooking.

Sorell Lions Club member Geoff Clow said he was thankful for the students’ support, with the event raising $640.

“Childhood cancer touches everybody emotionally, so any research is beneficial to people who are vulnerable,” he said.

“It’s good the see the students get around the cause because they’re the ones who see the children with cancer, so most of them might be personally aware of individual cases.

“It’s beneficial for them to help raise money for a cause that helps young people like them.”

The Sorell Primary School student representative council received a certificate of appreciation from the Sorell Lions Club.

Mr Clow said Lions Club supports a number of causes across the state, including the Cancer Council Relay for Life, Hearing Dogs Australia, and a number of shelters.
