Mayor McMahon said that Richmond Lions Club had the network in place to know who would most benefit from the appeal.

“It’s exciting that Christmas is coming,” Mayor McMahon said.

“This is the first year that Richmond Lions has been the nominated charity for the Mayoral Christmas Appeal.

“I encourage you to donate an unwrapped gift to those less fortunate. “Richmond Lions has asked for gifts for men, women and children of alla ges.

“I hope the Mayoral Christmas Appeal brings plenty of Christmas joy to our community through giving and receiving.”
