Mike and Pauline Surrell of Lady Rose Marine Services are hoping to fill their food donation box to overflowing again this year.

Lady Rose Marine issues holiday challenge

Help Lady Rose Marine Services fill their food donation box to overflowing, and encourage other businesses to do the same.

Mike and Pauline Surrell from Lady Rose Marine Services are issuing a challenge this holiday season: help them fill their food donation box to overflowing, and encourage other businesses to do the same at their establishments.

This is the second year that the Surrells have done their food drive in Port Alberni, but they used to do the same thing when they lived in Louisiana.

“I was surprised how many people brought in donations of food and just left,” Mike Surrell said of last year’s drive.

Last year the box was so overflowing with donations that Surrell had a hard time opening the front door to his business.

“There was so much food we had to bring in a large truck and a few guys to fill it,” he said.

Surrell is also offering $25 round trips to Bamfield on the MV Frances Barkley in December if people bring in a minimum of three non-perishable food items when they book their tickets.

The Lady Rose Marine Services office is located at the MV Frances Barkley dock at Harbour Quay. Donations will be accepted until Jan. 2.
