LOWOOD Lions are continuing a fine tradition of providing Christmas cakes to the needy.

The Lions are teaming up this year with Stitt and St George Funeral Directors branch manager Alison Crabtree in Fernvale to get their cakes into the community.

Lowood Lions president Kevin Larsen has presented 150 cakes to the funeral directors.

"We'll be distributing these around Fernvale, Toogoolawah, Laidley, Gatton, Lowood and to all the smaller communities," Ms Crabtree said.

"We do this every year. The older people in the nursing homes appreciate that they are remembered at Christmas time, which is nice.

"We also have introduced nine chocolate hampers this year that we give to people like the Lions club that they can raffle off."

Mr Larsen said: "The cakes are a Lions project every year by Lions International."

Lions buy them off Western Foods and give them to businesses to sell.

"Each individual Lions club has this as a fundraiser and then that money goes back into the community," Mr Larsen said.
