With the Christmas season being a time of giving, Centennial Coal joined the Wangi Lions Club and the Morisset and Toronto Meals on Wheels (MoW) team up to spread a little Christmas cheer.

“This is the second year Centennial has been kind enough to donate the Lions Club Christmas cakes to us, to serve up with our Christmas meals for our MoW clients.”

“We make up Christmas goody bags for every client and include a big portion of cake.  The clients love receiving the gift bags in the week before Christmas so it certainly does add a little extra Christmas cheer for them,” said MoW Manager, Toni Bull.

Centennial has increased the number of cakes it donates to MoW to make sure everyone on the MoW service receives a piece of Christmas cake.

“It is great to see Centennial supporting two local organisations through the one initiative, as the proceeds from the pudding and cake sales go directly back into local community programs and initiatives such as the Westlakes Women’s Refuge, while helping MoW spread some extra festive merriment to its clients,” said Wangi Lions Club member and Cake Sales Coordinator, John Farrington.

Lions Australia Christmas cake and pudding program has been running for the past 47 years to help raise funds for local communities around Australia with the proceeds assisting medical research, aged care and youth program initiatives.
