The Lions of Tropical Gardens turned out early Boxing Day morning to deliver 19 Christmas baskets filled with goodies to the staff of the Health Services Authority (Maternity, Pharmacy, Medical, Paediatric, Surgical, Intensive Care, Emergency), Chrissie Tomlinson Hospital, Maple House, George Town and West Bay Police Stations, HMP Fairbanks (Women’s Prison), East End Sunrise Cottage (Retirement Home), Immigration Office (Owen Roberts Airport), Pines Retirement Home, Golden Age Home, 911 and George Town and West Bay Fire Stations.
The delivery of Christmas baskets has become a tradition for the Lions Club. The idea behind these deliveries is to show appreciation to the workers at all the essential services that oftentimes have to work throughout the holiday period.
These workers miss out on having Christmas with their families so that the island as a whole can enjoy theirs. They work long hours over the holidays and so the LCTG provide some “Goodies” that will keep them well nourished and remind them that there are those who care and appreciate the Sterling Service that they perform.
