Dorchester Lions Support Toy AppealDonating Funds for Christmas Gifts

Members of Dorchester and District Lions visited their local newspaper offices to donate funds which will be spent on Christmas presents for underprivileged children across Dorset.

Club president Tony Howden said: "Dorchester and District Lions are delighted to support the Dorset Echo Christmas Toy Appeal again this year.

"The club considers it especially important to help children and the disadvantaged at this festive time.

"Like other service organisations, we have enjoyed a long association with many local children's charities, especially Kingfisher Ward at the Dorset County Hospital.

“The Lions regularly purchase craft materials for use in play therapy on the ward, helping to enhance the children's stay whilst receiving treatment, and for many years we have arranged for children and their families to watch Weymouth's Christmas pantomime.

"During the festive season, when there are so many deserving good causes to support in the community, Dorchester Lions is particularly pleased to support the excellent Dorset Echo Christmas Toy Appeal for children in the area."
