Lions cook up a feast for kids eye testing

| 20/08/2009

(CNS): Lions were on the prowl at 3:00 am in George Town recently and while most of the Island was asleep the service club volunteers were at the Champion House kitchen to cook up a true feast for their fundraising breakfast consisting of Ackee and Codfish, green bananas, scrambled eggs and bacon. Money raised from the event will go towards the primary school sight screening project.

Volunteers were also cooking up fried fish, fritters, fried onions, plantation and fried sweet potatoes, tea and coffee over in the kitchen of the Lions Centre as well where by 11:00am lots of members of the community had stopped by to support this popular regular. 

Since its inception the Club has proudly served the local and worldwide community with its many projects, thanks to the strong support of the local community which make fundraising events like the breakfast a success. The Club President, Lion Debbi Ebanks said “we give thanks to Champion House and all supporters and volunteers who make these events possible.”

General meetings of the Club are held at 7:30pm on the first and third Thursdays of each month at the Lions Centre and guests are always welcome.
