ALMOST $50,000 in vouchers were handed out to regional flood victims thanks to the generosity of the Moore Park Lions Club at the weekend.

Almost 150 people attended a ceremony in Sharon on Saturday where residents from Sharon, South Kolan, Avondale, Miara and Smith's Crossing were given vouchers to spend at local flood-affected businesses including the North Bundaberg IGA, Nroco, Cooper's Home Hardware and Midtown Marina.

Vice-president Rod Layt said the donations were in addition to more than $26,000 presented to residents in the Winfield area in July.

"It's a double whammy - it helps the flood-affected residents and the businesses," he said.
