Lions Christmas cakes
AVAILABLE AT OUR DECEMBER MARKET
Our Lions Christmas Cake and Puddings project has been running successfully for over 45 years and has raised millions of dollars towards alleviating humanitarian need, providing vital medical research funds and supporting a wide range of community organisations.
Every cake sold will help someone in some special way. Whether it’s a child’s sight that is restored or a rescue service e.g Care Flight / Flying Doctor, is helped, a flood victim is given refuge and support, Lions answer hundreds of calls for need.
Lions cakes, this year are made from first grade ingredients by George Weston Foods, and are top quality and value for money. Our 1 kg and 1.5 kg cakes cost $13 and $17 respectively. Lions Puddings are 900 grams and cost $13 each, whilst mini cakes are $2 each.

More Trauma Bears Arrive

Recently received note ..." My 8 year old still treasures his trauma bear now called "Sebastian" which he received when he was 3 on a trip to the children's!"
Teddy Bear Program
Meet our Teddy Bears - we call Trauma bears, they are used in times of stress and crisis. Woodend Lions Club supply them to local paramedics and other emergency officers to pass on to our younger members of society. These children may have been the victims of crime, injured in an accident or be in a traumatic situation and looking for comfort. We all know how a cuddle can offer so much comfort.
The program has been running for 15 years now and was started by a Victorian Lions Club after seeing a similar program during a visit to the USA. The Doutta Galla Lions member, being a police officer himself, he was very conscious of how desperately such a scheme was needed in Australia. Our current model remains very similar to the US program although we endeavour to include not only the Police. but other Emergency Services as well. The Lions Club adopted Operation Teddy Bear as one of their State Projects in 1989 and has been the proud facilitator ever since.
The program is a most worthy cause and greatly assists the people in the organizations that deal with very traumatic situations every day of their life.
