GYMPIE Lions Club members are always supporting their community and, this time, have donated $1500 to Gymie Meals on Wheels' sink fund.

The stainless steel sink had a space of 17cm between the sink and the user, putting a strain on volunteers' lower backs.

Gympie Meals on Wheels manager Jules Delgado said Triton Steel worked its magic, cutting away the sink to create a comfortable, stylish alcove of only 6cm.

"It looked very professional but most importantly it has made the dish washing job so much more pleasurable - as much as washing dishes can be," Ms Delgado said.

"But, seriously, this should have been addressed ages ago but in true Aussie spirit the volunteers at GMOW are brilliant - they get in and do their job and complaining just isn't part of it.

"Thanks again to the wonderful work of the Lions club. Next time you buy a burger (from their food van) and support them in their endeavours, remember they too are all volunteers working to help support our amazing community.

"On behalf of Gympie Meals on Wheels I extend many thanks to all the wonderful Lions club members."
