The North Durban Lions club has more 1kg Lions Christmas Cakes available from the 2014 batch. They’ve been baked to the recipe that has been used for many years, so you can be sure of their quality and taste.
They are now available from the club at R60 per cake.
If you would like to purchase some cakes from the North Durban Club, please leave a message on this page, use our contact page or contact one of our members directly. The cakes will also be on sale at our stall at the Golden Hours market, every Sunday from 10:30 to 14:00. The market is located on the corner of Uitsig and Soofie Saheb Roads in Durban North, a block behind the Hypermarket.
The North Durban Lions Club was chartered in 1967, and has been serving the communities in and around Durban North, La Lucia and the like ever since. Like all Lions clubs our members are dedicated to the service of those in need, through a variety of projects and fundraising initiatives.
Our club is part of District 410C, part of Multiple District 410. The Multiple District forms part of Lions Clubs International along with other Districts and Multiple Districts from across the globe.

The delicious 1kg Lions Christmas Cakes are now available. They’ve been baked to the recipe that has been used for many years, so you can be sure of their quality and taste.
They will cost R75 this year for a 1kg uniced Christmas fruit cake, which contains no alcohol. 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 R75, you’ll be making an invaluable charitable contribution as well.
If you’re not in Durban North/La Lucia/Umhlanga or the surrounding areas, your local Lions club will almost certainly be selling cakes as well.
The club hosted a very successful “dog racing” fundraiser at its clubhouse on Saturday 4 October. The evening included a delicious 3 course meal along with 8 races with cut-out cardboard dogs, both of which were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended.
The club would like to thank its generous sponsors for making the evening possible:
- Marshall Security Guarding Division
- Marshall Security Armed Response Division
- Bay Union Employee Benefit Consultants
- CBI Electric/African Cables
- Flowers on Kensington

The club treated the 100 residents of TAFTA On Ridge retirement home to braaied beef or chicken burgers on Heritage Day. This rare treat was extremely well received – many of the residents thanked the club for the best meal they’ve had all year. The club has provided a braai for three years in a row now and it is always regarded as a definite highlight for the residents.
The club planted 2 trees at the Sinakekele home for abandoned babies and then enjoyed good fellowship with a braai at the home. Lion Denise and Mickey Bolland have recently moved out to Sinakekele and made the rest of the club very much at home.
Nedbank provided the club with many high quality double blankets and asked it to donate them to needy recipients on their behalf. The club donated 44 of the blankets to the Salvation Army’s Thembela home in Durban where they were gratefully received by the residents.
Through the Sinakekele Home, Lion Denise Bolland was asked to provide sandwiches for a breast feeding awareness day, presented to the mothers of new born babies at the Osindisweni Hospital, beyond Verulam. Lion Denise arranged donations of peanut butter and jam. The club purchased bread and juice and managed to get apples donated.
On Saturday 23 August the North Durban Lions entertained the boarders at the Golden Hours School for the intellectually disabled with an afternoon of crafts and sports. DC for Children’s Services Karen Preston joined the club as they helped the kids decorate marie biscuits, colour in and make paper airplanes and play skittles and soccer. The kids had a great time and it was a heartwarming experience for the Lions and their families as well.
