LOCAL Lions Club president Lloyd Smith and fellow member Bill Willocks travelled to Lorne this month to donate $7000 to fire-stricken households.
Lloyd said the Lorne Lions Club was delighted to accept the donation from Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads.
“The money was very gratefully received,” he said.
“It will be put directly into the bank accounts of the 13 permanent households that had their houses totally destroyed.”
The club raised the money in two weeks from plastic lion collection tins placed at businesses around Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads.
