Helping Hope Air

Three young girls set up a lemon tea stand to raise funds for Hope Air

An exciting meeting for Quesnel Friends of Hope Air (FHA) was held Nov. 12. They celebrated Molly Hartley

An exciting meeting for Quesnel Friends of Hope Air (FHA) was held Nov. 12.  They celebrated Molly Hartley, Kally Lokken and Dayana Terlesky for their fundraising efforts. These young ladies raised $175 for Hope Air by selling at a local fair, ice tea and bracelets they’d made themselves. Each girl received a certificate of appreciation from FHA. They would also like to thank Fraser River GM for their $250 donation and Granville’s for their continued support by supplying coffee and treats for our meetings. Hope Air is a Canadian charity that organizes free, non-emergency medical flights to major centres for patients of any age in financial need. Check out their Facebook page “Quesnel Friends of Hope Air” for the next meeting date. All are welcome – bring your ideas and energy.
