    THE newest Lions club branch in the North East has just helped a budding young athlete compete against the best in her sport.

    Wangaratta Lions Club Glenrowan Warby Range branch made its first ever community donation to help Hamilton Park athlete Renee Kosch, helping her realise a dream.

    Ms Kosch jetted off to East Lansing in Michigan yesterday morning to compete in the bocce event at the 2013 World Dwarf Games.

    After starting the sport in 2009, she has made it to this elite level where she will test her skills against the world’s best on the second and penultimate days of the games.

    “The $500 donation will help pay for the airfares to the USA in what will be a trip of a lifetime that I’m sure I’ll never forget,” she said.
