    New BBQ Trailer - Almost there

    With the assistance of the Rye Bendigo Bank who generously provided a grant to fund a new BBQ trailer we are in the home straight and should be about to use our new unit when the current COVID restrictions ease.

    The photo shows the trailer during the fit out stage and we have now completed the work and it is ready for use. We are happy with the result and we are sure that it will be something that our Lions and the community will get a great deal of use from in the future.

    Rye Lions supporting the RCH Good Friday Appeal

    Good Friday each hear sees the Lions Club of Rye feeding the highway collectors from the Uncle Bob's Club as they make their way (pushing a wheelbarrow) from Sorrento to Dromana.

    Each year the Uncle Bob's Club supported by the Mornington Peninsula Tourism Association and the Lions Club of Rye team together for a very successful fundraising exercise raising money for the Royal Children's Hospital.

    Each year this activity is bigger and better than the previous year and thanks are extended to all involved in this activity.

  • Bendigo Bank - Promotional Free BBQ

    Each month on the 3rd Thursday the Lions Club of Rye offers free sausages in bread to members of the public as a promotion for the Rye Branch of the Bendigo Bank. Sausages are given away free of charge between the hours of 10.00am and 1.00pm and are gratefully received by anyone who wishes to pass by and take advantage of the bank''s generosity.
    The support of the Lions Club of Rye in this venture is in recognition of the great support and sponsorship offered by the Bendigo Bank to the local community.

    Note: Unfortunately at the moment (October 2020) due to covid restrictions we are unable to conduct these free BBQ's however we shall resume the project as soon as restrictions on face to face contact are lifted.
