Paget Lions prepare for annual Gas-a-Fillup
Here’s your chance to do your bit for those in need across our community by simply filling up your vehicle with gas.
The Paget Lions Club is holding its annual Gas-a-Fillup from 7am to 3pm this Saturday at Paget Gas Station on Middle Road.
About 12 members of the Paget Lions will become pump attendants for the day as they roll up their sleeves and put the pump to the nozzle.
Any tips given by the public will go to the Paget Lions Scholarship, which was set up to provide supplementary assistance to Bermudians in post-secondary academic or technical programmes.
Local community groups will also receive a portion of the money raised.
Anthony Bennett, president of the Paget Lions, said: “Everyone should come out and support a good cause by topping up or filling up and leave a tip to help out the community.”
The Gas-a-Fillup is an annual event, which has been held for at least seven years and usually raises up to about $1,000.
US Consul Grace Shelton, who helped to launch the event at the gas station yesterday, supports the fundraiser.
