Community successful supporting local hospice

Rona was the scene for donations on Wednesday morning. The Newcastle and District Lions Club made a donation of $12,000 to Durham Region Hospice – Clarington. The Newcastle Lions Club would like to thank the community for supporting the bottle drive, and a big thank-you to John and his staff at Rona for allowing them to use his location.

Lloyd Johnson Concert Band gathered the money from the last two concerts from Newtonville last September 5 and from New-castle September 14. The little red bag contained $6000 cash. Receiving the donation on behalf of Hospice was Jackie Nixon and Marian Timmermans on the left, Fred Cambers and Lloyd Johnson of the Lloyd Johnson Concert Band and on the right is Jill Richardson, also representing Durham Region Hospice – Clarington.
