The Lion Foundation have ownership of all gaming machines operated in Oamaru Licensing Trust owned premises which are:
- Sports Central Brewhouse, 1 Wear Street, Oamaru
- Northstar Restaurant Bar & Motels, 495A Thames Highway Oamaru
The decision on which organisations are successful is still made by LOCAL people. The Grants Distribution committee consists of five elected Oamaru Licensing Trust members and one independently appointed local resident. All monies generated through the gaming machines in the Oamaru Licensing Trust establishments are returned to North Otago based organisations.
If your club, group or organisation would like to apply for funding, please pick up a form from the Oamaru Licensing Trust offices located on Wear St or fill out the downloadable form on the right of this page.
