The Lions Club City of Launceston dug deep and donated $1000 to the Empty Stocking Appeal, given with their best wishes and an ongoing pledge to help the community.
The Empty Stocking Appeal, organised by The Examiner, provides relief at this time of the year to those who need it most.
Member of the club, Margaret Whitmore, said they like to try and give a substantial amount every year, with much of the funds they raise going to efforts such as Empty Stocking.
"[People] help us by supporting our charity fundraising and then we pass it on to the most important fundraisers around the town who look after these people who are having it tough," she said.

The club is committed to hosting activities that raise funds to support the local community, which includes supporting The Cancer Council's Daffodil Day and organising the annual Children's Christmas Parade.
Even though the club had to cancel this year's parade, it is still committed to bringing Christmas cheer to families in need of support.
"We are hoping [the parade] will be better than ever next year," Ms Whitmore said.
Cake chairman Donald Binns said there are a lot of people out there that do need help, but that many of us don't realise it.
President Robert Pearce agreed with Mr Binns and said we don't realise how many families don't have the opportunities that others may do.
"I think... [Empty Stocking] is about supporting the people in the community who are less fortunate, particularly at this time of the year when a lot of families are getting together," he said.
"If we can donate in some way so that they can have some good food on the table or some presents under the tree, that's really a privilege for us to to be able to do that."
