PORT Shepstone Lions and Lion Ladies hosted their 26th annual Christmas lunch for senior citizens at the Port Shepstone High hall recently.

A total of 100 senior folk from the Flower Foundation, Anerley Haven, Mbango Valley and other residences in the area were transported to the event by Lions members.

They were all treated to live musical entertainment, courtesy of Jonathan Brauteseth on keyboards, and singer Brian Algie.

The guests were serenaded with Christmas carols and other songs from yesteryear and served a delightful three-course meal, prepared by the Sheppie Lion ladies and Santa Clause, Lion Clayton Curnow, presented each guest with a sponsored Christmas gift bag filled with wonderful goodies.

The event was a huge success, thanks mainly to project co-ordinator Lion Hilton Horsley and his team of dedicated Lions and Lion ladies.

Port Shepstone Lions are grateful to Port Shepstone High School for allowing the club to use its facilities.

The Lions would also like to thank the hostel catering staff, Sunrise Farms, the Frey family and Fresh Meat, Ola Ice Cream and Harbourview Spar for their sponsorship assistance and support. - Supplied.
