Toolamba Lions Club has received two Seniors Festival grants from Greater Shepparton City Council.

The club made the only two applications for funding by the time the grants closed on February 28.

The club has two $500 grants, one for Festive Afternoon Tea Hampers, which will be delivered in a COVID-19-safe manner to seniors in the community, complete with a friendly chat, and the other for a pleasant afternoon out for seniors from Toolamba and nearby towns.

This will be a social outing for the participants, connecting them with other local seniors and also with the volunteers working on the day at the Toolamba Community Hall.
