Holsworthy & District Lions held their annual children’s Christmas party on Sunday 13th December. One hundred and sixty-two guests paid £1 each to take part in the festive fun in the Memorial Hall in Holsworthy. The party featured a disco from Lion and professional DJ Andy King, magic tricks and entertainment from “Mr Wacky”, as well as more traditional party games such as pass the parcel. Fizzy drinks and ice-cream were free for the kids and adults – with one youngster setting a new record for managing to eat eight ice-creams in the space of three hours. The afternoon finished with a visit from a very special guest all the way from the North Pole – so all the kids left with a present at the end of the day.

Former Lions’ President Ray Fursdon said that, along with Fun Day, this really is one of the highlights of the Lions’ year. To see the smiles and laughter on the kids’ faces is great – it really is what being a member of the Lions Club is all about. Ray also thanked the wives, partners, children and daughter-in-laws of all the Lions who turned out to help on the day – and also a special thank you to the volunteers from Holsworthy Youth Club who gave up their time to make this such an enjoyable afternoon.
