Okay, who wants Christmas cake?

The famous Lions Christmas Cake fundraiser is on again.

Bucklands Beach Lions have taken possession of more than 200 Christmas Cakes which will be sold in the coming weeks.

Roger Robinson, President of Bucklands Beach Lions, says the cake sales have run since 1971. “These cakes are still made to the much-loved original recipe and not sold anywhere else.” he said.

And that original recipe – the cakes are made with more than 50 per cent fruit – was developed by Ernest Adams especially for the Lions fundraiser.

The packaging has been freshened up but nothing else has changed. Millions of dollars have been raised over the years – and it has all gone back to the clubs and into the community projects they support.

Lions Club of Bucklands Beach is gearing up the annual Christmas cake fundraiser. Pictured are, from left, John Green, Roger Robinson, Sue Green and Bryan Connor.

Roger says they hope to raise over $800 from the cake sales which will go into the Bucklands Beach fundraising pool which last year exceeded $15,000 for distribution to many groups and causes in the local community. These included local schools for annual prizegiving awards, supporting KidzFirst children’s hospital, providing prescription eyeglasses for young school children, helping to fund disabled children on the Spirit of Adventure and many others.

In Lions, 100 percent of the money raised from the public goes to support these community projects.
