Christmas Hampers

Each year Lions make up a number of food parcels in an effort to bring a little Christmas cheer to various groups of people in the community, these include elderly persons living alone and families experiencing some difficulties in their life. 

Quite a number of parcels are delivered each year and shopping for the contents, during what is traditionally a busy period, can be daunting. The Lions are always delighted when local supermarkets step in and offer to help by making up the huge order prior to Lions arriving to collect it.

Lions Club member Mick Wood commented.. 'the amount of time and the problem of getting around the store with several trolleys full of groceries has created a nightmare for us in previous years. With the help of local supermarkets the whole job has been so much easier., and as Lions are involved in so many projects around Christmas this has been an enormous help to us'

The food parcels are delivered by Lions in the last few days leading up to Christmas in the hope that the Festive Season will be just a little better for the recipients.
Below are pictured some of the hampers ready for delivery.
