Methven Lions are a group of about 70 locals who volunteer their time and skills for the benefit of the local community. Many fundraising activities are undertaken with the proceeds distributed locally via the Methven Lions Charitable Trust.
Projects include the Mt Hutt Open Day, Annual Golf Tournament, Methven Motor Show, Mud and Steel Winch Challenge and the High Country 4WD safari. Manpower is donated to help with the logistics of many other community service events.
Assistance is given with many other community projects such as building and maintaining the Methven walkway circuit, looking after the Garden of Harmony, and World Service Day. Every month a different community group is paid to cater the member’s dinner meal.
All these efforts combine to generate significant funds for the local community, by the local community.
