The Lions Club Swakopmund had their periodic fundraising raffle recently, with Swakopmund Mayor Cllr. Louisa Kativa, drawing the tickets. A Renault KWID (a sponsor by Associated Motor Holdings (AMH)) was the first prize. The second and third prizes were respectively N$10 000 and N$5 000.

Thanks to the hard work and commitment of members of the Lions Club, a total of 3 645 raffle tickets were sold. Lion Renate Witt sold the most raffle tickets, a total of 51 booklets of the 182 booklets with raffle tickets the members had to sell for the fundraising.
Also presiding over the raffle draw was Mr. Max Schwieger, the Chairman of the Lions Old Age Home Trust and Swakopmund Lions President Stephen Steenekamp.
With the sale of the raffle tickets, a total of N$364 500 was raised, with the proceeds going to the Lions Frail Care Centre.
“The funds generated will assist with the upkeep of the Frail Care Centre. It currently houses 34 people”, explained Lion Max Schwieger. He thanked the public who supported this fundraiser and also handed a certificate over to Lion Renate Witt for her outstanding effort to sell the raffle booklets.
The Mayor who drew the tickets brought a lot of joy to some lucky winners. Mr. Thomas Ebrecht won the Renault KWID. Mr. Billy Schickerling won the N$10 000 cash prize and Barnet Geldenhuys N$5 000.
