On Sunday 3rd of December, 2023, The Lions Club of the City of Adelaide hosted their Annual Lions Christmas Spirit Event at the North Adelaide Community Centre. This was the third year the club has run this event.
What a fabulous afternoon with sixty-four (64) lions, cubs, family, friends and members of the local community, coming together to decorate Lions mini fruit cakes to be donated to the Hutt Street Centre and Adelaide City Fred’s Van.
Chris Burns, the CEO from the Hutt Street Centre, and Fred’s Van Program Coordinator, Teresa Branch, had a tough decision judging the best decorated cakes (adult and child winners). So many amazing designs and attention to detail.
In addition to judging, Chris and Teresa found time to jump right in and decorate a couple cakes themselves. And what a fantastic job they did too.
And of course, a big thank you to Coles Castle Plaza, Drakes Lightsview, and Whip-It-Up Cake Supplies for your donations for this year’s event. Your support was very much appreciated. Thank you!!!
Thank you to everyone who came along and gave their time for this service project. The afternoon was filled with Christmas spirit and together we decorated and donated 300 Lions mini fruit cakes. Amazing! PLUS we raised funds to purchase toys for children less fortunate this Christmas, which were donated to Puddle Jumpers and Backpacks 4 SA Kids. Another successful event.
We look forward to welcoming everyone back for next year’s Lions Christmas Spirit Event.
