NINETY Christmas food parcels have been delivered to people in need in Verwood and surrounding towns by Wimborne and Ferndown Lions Club.

Club members filled bags with about 25 food items from bulk supplies purchased from Morrisons of Verwood.

The bags are then delivered to people most in need who have been identified by social services, Citizens Advice Bureaux and GPs.

This year the club was helped by Verwood mayor Simon Gibson.
