Lions deliver cheer for Christmas

The Lions Club of Grand Cayman continued with the spirit of giving this Christmas by undertaking a gift drop off for shut-ins, the elderly and those less fortunate.

Members of the club went to each district bearing gifts and tidings of the season Christmas Day.

The gift run is an annual event put together by the Lions Club of Grand Cayman in association with a host of businesses and persons in the community who contribute to the event.

The day’s event began with a stop at the George Town Hospital, where the Lions delivered 25 Christmas baskets filled with goodies and several gifts for young children across Grand Cayman.

The Lions also recognised the first baby to be delivered on Christmas morning and presented her with a lion toy.

The Chrissie Tomlinson Hospital, Maple House, George Town and West Bay Police Stations, HMP Fairbanks, East End Sunrise Cottage, Immigration Office at the Owen Roberts Airport, the Pines Retirement Home and a slew of others also received gifts.

Three families were included in the delivery process this year and the Lions presented them with three hampers filled with groceries.

The delivery of Christmas baskets has become a tradition for the Lions Club.

The idea behind the deliveries is to show appreciation to workers at all the essential service locations that oftentimes have to work through the holiday, as well as to give families that may have less, a little more.
