Lowestoft Lions ready again to bring Christmas joy
Almost as traditional as mince pies and mulled wine, Lowestoft Lions are bringing seasonal joy to their community as they have done for many years.
Their Christmas festive preparations have already begun with a Hamper draw. Members spent a weekend in Morrison’s Superstore in Tower Road, Pakefield offering shoppers a chance to win one of three large hampers or three store gift vouchers as prizes in a raffle. The proceeds will partly fund 66 Christmas grocery hampers for needy families and individuals.
Over £2000 worth of groceries have been packed into food parcels with each hamper including a Christmas pudding and cake, biscuits, tins of soup, fruit, vegetables and chocolate – sufficient to ensure that the recipients would have the ingredients for a good meal on Christmas day. These will be delivered to elderly people, to families and individuals that have been referred to the Lions.
Santa and his sleigh,
Lowestoft Lions will again be helping Santa and his sleigh, complete with reindeer figures, when it is parked at superstores around Lowestoft. There Father Christmas will meet shoppers and listen to children’s Christmas gift wishes.
