A group of kids and volunteers have raised more than $800 for the Winchester District Memorial Hospital.
The North Dundas United Soccer Club raised the money at an event held during the end of its season.
Hospital Communications Lead Jane Adams says more than 250 kids took part, and $847 was raised.
“We wanted to find a way to give back to the community, and over the years I have come to the hospital for soccer related injuries,” says club president Julian Whittam. “So we thought, what better way to give back than to support the hospital.”
Hospital staff members are thanking the kids who took part for their help raising the money.
“Thank you to some of our youngest donors,” says Manager of Direct Mail and Events Justine Plummer. “We appreciate you combining fun and fundraising to support health care close to home.”
Adams says the money will be put towards the hospital’s “General Equipment Fund,” which it uses to support internal projects, like its new health information platform, “Epic.”
