The delicious Lions Christmas Cakes are now available. As for many years now, they have been baked by Albany, so you can be sure of their quality and taste.

They will cost R70 this year. As with all funds raised by any Lions club, all the proceeds of the sale of Lions Christmas Cakes will be used directly for charitable projects.

Not only will you be getting a truly delicious Christmas cake for your R70, you’ll be making an invaluable charitable contribution as well.
