Packing up 400 Christmas parcels to help needy families is a tiring job.
But Maidenhead Lions got down to it with enthusiasm at Claires Court Senior Boys School in Ray Mill Road East on Sunday.
Now it was just a question of getting them parcelled up, ready to distribute to families in the town.
About 50 volunteers, including Lions, their families and staff and pupils from Claires Court, spent about two hours making up the parcels.
Lion Don Evetts said: "The shoppers of Maidenhead were as generous as usual and we are always grateful to the supermarkets for letting us collect outside.
"Claires Court School made its sports hall available to make up the parcels and everything went like clockwork."
