Torquay Lions Club

Mr GRIMLEY (Western Victoria) (12:59): Now more than ever before communities have been supporting each other in the current world we live in. Torquay Lions Club is one of those incredible associations that gives back to the community every day. Like all Lions clubs, they offer mentoring and are selfless people. They get involved in humanitarian efforts locally, nationally and indeed internationally. At the beginning of this pandemic my office decided to donate free hand sanitiser to local businesses for the safety of them, their staff and their customers. My office was approached by the Torquay Lions Club, who stated that they send small charitable packs to local residents who are suffering a bit more than others. They undertake this initiative every month and requested the sanitisers for their packs. I was very pleased they did as the cost of purchasing sanitiser can add up and the benefit it provides in preventing the spread of COVID-19, as we know, is invaluable. The Torquay RSL have also taken up our offer of free hand sanitiser, and they have been sending packs of essentials to veterans in the local area, which is a great way to ensure that they do not feel left out and lonely, and they get some of the materials and support that they need. Thank you to both organisations for their hard work.
