The Lions Club of Sey­mour Goul­burn con­tin­ued their an­nual Easter char­ity drive for the el­derly in the Sey­mour com­mu­nity this year.

The res­i­dents of Karin­gal and Barra­bill House woke up Easter morn­ing with an Easter egg gift bag on their break­fast tray, com­pli­ments of the Lions Club of Sey­mour Goul­burn, whose mem­bers vol­un­teer their time to pur­chase or cre­ate the bags and gift cards and then de­liver them.

On Easter morn­ing a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the Sey­mour Ven­tur­ers group and the Lions Club also de­liv­ered Easter gifts to the un­for­tu­nate peo­ple who were in Sey­mour Health and away from their fam­i­lies.

The left­over gift bags went to the po­lice on duty at the Sey­mour Po­lice sta­tion who were grate­ful.
