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.
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
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.
