THE fundraising efforts of the Warwick Lions Club and generosity of the community have helped place a $5000 cheque into the hands of Warwick's Blue Care office.

Warwick Lions Club life member Trevor Sheeran said the money was raised during the annual cubby house raffle.

"The cubby was built by the Warwick Woodcrafters," he said.

"The materials were all donated by local business houses."

Blue Care acting service manager Angela Davies said the money would be a big help.

"It will be used for equipment," she said.

"It will ensure that we are able to continue caring for clients in the Warwick community.

Mr Sheeran said both community groups were grateful for the support.

"We are thankful for the community support over the years," he said.
