Selected areas of the town received their iconic yellow bags through their doors and a week later the residents of Farnham had generously filled the bags with food to be distributed to those less fortunate.

The donated treats, essentials, and Christmas goodies where sorted and delivered to 14 different local agencies as to directly support the needy in our community. Also, this year the amazing kindness of the community let the Lions deliver an abundancy of items to the Farnham Food Bank to help bolster their stocks for the festive period. They were delighted to accept a large donation but wanted to remind the town that the need for support is an all-year-round issue and look forward to more donations in the New Year from the town.
Lions' President Mandy Main said, "Yet again the residents of Farnham never cease to amaze us with their generosity, with the whole country going through hardship the town has stepped up to support people in our community that are in need. Their kindness we make sure others have a square meal and some well apricated treats at this important time of year. We've worked closer than previous years with other agencies to help us target those in need while letting us fore fill the growing need of our local support networks. Also grateful thanks for the thoughtful donations from the Muslim ladies Islamabad, branch of Tilford. ' Mandy added, "We're also running our annual Wenceslas Fuel Poverty Fund which helps people struggling to stay warm and cook this winter with their bills.
