Geselsprogram met Dave Pepler en Kie

Kom kuier lekker saam met Dave Pepler, Johan Rademan en Jurgens Schoeman tydens ‘n gesellige geselsprogram aangebied deur die Wellington Lions Club, in samewerking met Live The Journey. Vir Suid Afrikaanse gehore het Dave Pepler, die gewilde radio- en TV persoonlikheid, geen bekendstelling nodig nie. Dave is seker een van Suid Afrika se mees geliefde en bekende natuurkenners. Sy passie vir natuurbewaring, sy breë kennis van die wêreld rondom ons en sy gemaklike, spitsfondige geselstrant maak dit ‘n belewenis om in sy geselskap te...

Day in the Country

Day in the Country

For very obvious reasons, we also call this our “Potjiekos Dag”. It is an inter-club outing when clubs in our district are invited to join us for a day in the countryside. It is a day when new friendships are forged and old ones are renewed. The day is very popular with everyone. Thanks to the lovely scenery in and around our beautiful town as well as our famous Wellington hospitality, our Lions friends return year after year. As with previous years the “potjiekos” and homemade breads and jam went down very well. This...

Wellington Lions Club donates rain jackets to rural primary school

The Wellington Lions Club recently donated 95 rain jackets to all the learners of Voor Groenberg Primary School, on the outskirts of Wellington. The donation was made possible by funds raised during the Voetspore evening with Johan Badenhorst that was held earlier this year (2014). This project was also part of our “67 minutes for Mandela”. This farm school caters for grade R to grade 4 learners and currently has 5 full time teachers working with the children of local (some seasonal and therefore often unemployed) farm workers....
