Congratulations to Kate Martin (Year 12) who is leaving on a five week Lions Youth Exchange to North America. Kate has been sponsored by the Gore Pakeke Lions Club and will be staying with host families in Colorado and Los Angeles. This is part of her residential project as part of her Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and she will also be acting as a Youth Ambassador, representing Gore, Southland and New Zealand.
The youth exchange programme has been operating in New Zealand since 1976. It's aim is to foster a spirit of understanding and goodwill throughout the world. Youth interested in applying should contact their local Lions Club for further information.
