Weymouth & Portland Lions Club President Kevin Brookes dropped in unannounced on volunteers in Littlemoor this morning to bring a little Christmas cheer and handed over a donation of £500 to Weymouth Foodbank on behalf of the club. A further donation of £500 has also been sent to Portland foodbank.

Club President Kevin Brookes said, “Christmas is always such a difficult time for some families, who sadly still must rely on our foodbanks for help. The last couple of years has been hard enough for us all, but all the local foodbanks in our area have been as busy as ever doing great work. These donations are well deserved.”

Weymouth & Portland Lions have supported local foodbanks in Weymouth and Portland for several years now, making regular donations to assist them in their work. Lions receive donations from the public at some of the Lions organised events such as the Street Busk in July, Beach Motocross in October, the Lions Variety Show in November, and the ever-popular Christmas Day Harbour Swim in December. All funds raised at these popular events are used to make donations to other organisations and charities throughout the year.
