Hope Air Quesnel looking for your help

Canadian charity helps families access medical assistance

Vicky Roy

Lynne and Terry Worden are so appreciative of the services of Hope Air, a national Canadian charity that promotes equal access to healthcare by providing free flights to low income families who need medical treatment far from home, they have become Hope Air ambassadors and have embarked on a challenge to raise $10,000 for other families and individuals in Quesnel in need of these services.

They have chosen to launch a fundrazr crowd funding online where anyone can donate to the cause. So far they have passed an important milestone with $1,380 in the fund.

Donations are coming from groups, families and individuals all supporting this tremendous service.

Service groups are also getting onboard with Wells stepping up to the plate. Every Friday the Wells Legion is holding a dinner with all the proceeds donated to the Hope Air Quesnel fundraiser.

So if you’re planning a trip to Wells, Barkerville or Bowron Lakes, make your first stop the Wells Legion on Friday night, enjoy a great dinner and help out Hope Air Quesnel.

Quesnel’s Hope Air ambassadors are also looking to connect with other families in the community who have benefited from Hope Air. Anyone interested in sharing their story can email tlworden@telus.net or Anna du Bois at Hope Air, adubois@hopeair.ca.
