Lions roar for Scouts

For the past two years, members at Erskine Park Scouts have only been able to use half of their hall due to a termite infestation.


But thanks to a generous donation of timber from the Cambridge Park Lions Club, they can now start to rebuild the damaged hall.


“We got rid of the termites over a year ago, but they completely destroyed the place,” said Erskine Park Scouts leader, Andrew McLean.


Cambridge Park Lions donated more than $2,500 worth of timber after seeing an article in the Weekender back in July calling for assistance.


“The donation will get the entire framework for the damaged parts, which is a really great start on things,” Mr McLean said.
Charles Kennaway from Cambridge Park Lions said they were more than happy to pitch in.


“The community was very generous when we were raising funds for the Queensland Flood Appeal so this was our way of giving back,” he said.


Erskine Park Scouts is just one of the local groups that Cambridge Park Lions have reached out to help.


“We do a lot of things for a valid cause,” Mr Kennaway said.
