It was first staged some seven years ago from an idea from late Lion Phil Carnes and has been held in his honour ever since. The lunch is open to all seniors but as places are limited you must register to attend. Registrations will be held at Wright’s fruit Barn on Saturday 16th November from 9 am to 12 noon.

Councillor Brook Savage said, “It was great to see Bribie Island Lions take the initiative of conducting the Christmas lunch for seniors, it is always great for the seniors on Bribie.”

Lions Christmas cakes and puddings are now available on Bribie at various outlets; Priceline Chemist, Nextra Newsagency, Mitre 10, Bongaree Pharmacy, Banksia Beach Pharmacy, Banksia Beach Newsagency or phone 0457 867 390. Tickets for the Christmas stocking are also now on sale.

All proceeds go back into the local community.
