Angel gives big thanks

More than $1,000 was raised for BC Children's Hospital by Angel Magnussen, who wants to give thanks.

To the editor,

We raised $1,149 for BC Children’s Hospital and Variety the children’s charity at the 90th Anniversary Hayes Truck Show on Canada Day weekend.

Thank you to Steve and Vicki Drybrough, Jim Falconer and the event committee for inviting us to attend and for helping us to raise money for our two favorite charities.

We also thank Finning Nanaimo, Island Pacific Logging, Western Forest Products and Hayes Forest Industries for donating all of the hats and mugs for us to sell.

Thank you to Vancouver Island Limousine for driving us in the Canada Day Parade and for asking everyone to come to the 90th Anniversary Hayes Truck Show to help us raise money for sick kids.

And thank you to everyone that supported our fundraising work by making a purchase or a donation.

Thanks to you, many sick kids can now be helped.
