Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PICTURE SPECIAL -

A CHAR­ITY’S an­nual Christ­mas scheme pro­vided food to hun­dreds of peo­ple in need.

Ear­lier this month, col­lec­tions of goods were made at Tesco, in Amer­sham, and Waitrose and Sains­bury’s, in Che­sham, for the Amer­sham and Che­sham Lions Club’s an­nual Christ­mas Par­cel Scheme.

The group was able to make up 535 in­di­vid­ual food parcels and 28 fam­ily boxes from the do­na­tions which were sent out to lonely and needy peo­ple in Che­sham and Amer­sham.

It was also able to give pot plants and boxes of cho­co­lates to those who are lonely but not needy.

Pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer Ernest Newhouse said: “Thanks to the peo­ple of Amer­sham and Che­sham for their gen­er­ous support of the an­nual Christ­mas Parcels scheme.

“We’re also grate­ful for the many cash do­na­tions re­ceived from in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions.”
