Lions fundraiser back again

LTR: John Green, Roger Robinson, Sue Green & Bryan Connor

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, membership chairman for Bucklands Beach Lions, says the cake sales have run for more than 45 years.

“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 the community projects they support.

Robinson says they hope to raise around $750 from the cake sales which will go into Bucklands Beach Lions’ fundraising pool which last year exceeded $20,000 for distribution to many groups and causes in the local community.
