The Lions Club of Pattaya continued efforts to drive education for area youths, donating a used car to Pattaya Technical College for maintenance classes.
Club President Bhunanan Patanasin and other members presented a 1999 Peugeot 306 to school Director Pariwat Thaniro March 24.
Lion Phisit Jitphisutsathaporn said the car was deteriorating as it waited to be sold, so the club thought it would benefit the college more, as students could practice maintenance and repair on it during shop classes. If the car had been new, he noted, it wouldn’t be of much use to repair classes.

The car was the second the Lions Club has given to Pattaya Technical College. It also plans to present an old car to Sattahip Technical College.
Pariwat thanked the club for supporting student education by giving cars and other appliances for student to practice on. Beside cars, the club has given regularly to the club such items as televisions, computers and car engines.
Every month, the Lions Club of Pattaya does charity activities. Earlier, the club gave a water filter and a dispenser to Baan Thunglom School and bought lunch for students at the Redemptorist School for the Blind.
