Otago Community Hospice received a cheque for $16,522 from the Waiareka Valley and Waianakarua Lions Clubs' winter crop competition held in May

North Otago farmers and Lions raised a total of $66,000 for local charities while growing great fodder for their livestock. 

The annual Waiareka Valley and Waianakarua Lions Clubs' winter crop competition prizegiving and auction was attended by 250 people at Oamaru's historic Loan and Merc on May 18th.

The 85 crops were initially judged by Lions members under the guidance of a local authority, then the top ones were inspected by representatives from major sponsor Wholesale Seeds.

The money raised from entry fees plus the 79 auction lots and 12 silent auction donations would be split between the Otago Regional Helicopter Trust, Oamaru Hospital, Oamaru Hospice Hub, and Oamaru St John Building Fund.
