$8500 for the Grand Veiw Manor Mini Bus Appeal

 

It’s been almost twelve months since Berwick’s Grand View Manor senior citizen home, embarked upon the ambitious task of raising $100,000 to be able to buy a much-needed replacement mini-bus. The current vehicle has seen good service over the years but the time has come to put this vehicle into retirement and make way for a more practical, reliable and newer model. So during this year the staff have organized many successful fundraising events and have raised a significant amount of the money required.

The news of their appeal spread throughout the county and the fund has been boosted by donations from a number of local businesses and organizations.

The local Lions Clubs have helped with their own donations, and this week The Berwick & District club presented their cheque raised from the proceeds of their third annual music concert which was held on September 1st during the town’s Gala Day festivities.

This year the club brought to town an Eagles tribute band, ‘One of These Nights’. The band made the journey to Berwick from Montreal just to play this one fundraising concert. One of the band’s founding members, Romy Belanger said,” We were approached about playing in the Maritimes and when we learned about the reason for the concert we had no hesitation in agreeing to come. In the end we had a fantastic time – I think we probably had as much, if not more, fun as the audience seemed to!”.

The concert was organized by Lions Club member Mark Hansford, with the help of 20 lion’s club members and friends on the night. “This year’s concert was a little different from previous years because we had a specific goal before the concert, which was naturally to raise as much money as we could for the mini-bus fund. We heard about the appeal and helped with some small contributions, but the Manor is close to the hearts of so many people in our community who have or had relatives or friends in residence, so we decided to devote this year’s profits to them. On the evening the event was sold out and with more than 700 people attending, we managed to raise $8,500 for the appeal. We, our co-sponsor 89.3 K-Rock and everyone who was involved in the event are thrilled that those attending the show, from all over Canada and even some from people from Europe, were so generous in helping us raise this money.”

The appeal is close to reaching the target but more money is still needed - further donations are still welcomed for individuals or business alike - Please contact Grand View Manor or the Berwick & District Lions Club.
