Lions Christmas Cakes

Lions Christmas cakes – A perfect festive tradition

Back in 1971, Ernest Adams, New Zealand’s premier baker, created a special Christmas cake recipe exclusive to Lions – the cakes were moist, full of fruit, did not crumble, had a guaranteed shelf life of no less than two years and, most importantly, tasted delicious.

Now, 48 years on, the only change is the refreshed packaging.  The Lions Christmas cakes are still baked by Ernest Adams using the original tried, tested, proved and unique Lions Christmas Cake recipe.  Lions Christmas Cakes are available only from this website OR Lions Clubs and Lions Clubs’ members all over New Zealand.

Thanks for supporting Lions Clubs Christmas Cakes

We are community volunteers who roll up our sleeves to help young people, the elderly, the ailing, the needy and our environment.  In terms of our time on projects and money raised, it is estimated that Lions Clubs contribute more than $100 million each year for charitable organisations here and in the Pacific Islands.

We are proud that every dollar raised from the public goes to a Lions Clubs charitable cause. We do not take a percentage of the money for our own purposes.  All monies raised are used exclusively for charitable purposes.

People who live in the community know their communities needs best:   because each Lions Club is autonomous, (although part of the wider Lions family) decisions about community projects are made at a grass roots level.  Lions’ projects tend to be very hands on and we actively work alongside organisations that we support.
