911.jpg(CNS): As people unwrapped presents and tucked into turkey this Christmas break those employed in essential services were at their posts as usual. The Lions Club of Tropical Gardens (LCTG) brought some season’s greetings many of them on Boxing Day morning (December 26), as club members set out to deliver 25 baskets filled with goodies to the staff of the Health Services Authority, Chrissie Tomlinson Hospital, Maple House, Middle Road Home, police and fire stations, the islands’ prisons, retirement homes as well the Immigration Office at the airport and the 911 emergency services centre.

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 who oftentimes have to work throughout the holiday period. 

Lion Caroline Roberts, Chairperson of the Social Services Committee, stated that many of these workers missed out on having Christmas with their families because they are working so the LCTG want to show that their appreciation and thanks with the baskets.
