Lioness jam-makers get to work


Things were getting heated in the kitchen last Saturday as the Lioness Club of Nelson made their annual gifts of home-made jam.

The activity was part of the group’s service to the community and saw 200 jars of jam cooked, bottled and labelled, ready to go out with the Meals on Wheels dinners over the next month or so.

Every home in the Nelson area who receives Meals on Wheels will also get a jar of jam, made possible with the help of Nelson Intermediate who regularly give the Lioness group use of their technology kitchen.

The Lioness Club of Nelson projects group was also busy last Saturday.

Set up in the other half of the kitchen, they were churning out cheese rolls which will be sold to raise money for Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
