The Gulf News (Port aux Basques) - - Editorial - BY LISA BROWN

The Con­fir­ma­tion Classes of St. James Church in Port aux Basques have com­pleted their Stew­ard­ship Project, rais­ing over $1580 for var­i­ous char­i­ties.

The 17 chil­dren were given $5 each to come up with an idea to raise funds. The money they raised was dis­trib­uted to sev­eral dif­fer­ent char­i­ties: $100 to lo­cal Christ­mas Ham­pers; $100 to the Gate­way Women’s Cen­tre in Port aux Basques; $100 to the In Mem­ory of Shadow Fund (a lo­cal an­i­mal res­cue or­ga­ni­za­tion); and, fi­nally, $1280 to the Pri­mates World Re­lief Fund (PWRF), which will help with the pur­chase of farm an­i­mals and bi­cy­cles for vil­lages in un­de­vel­oped coun­tries.

The stu­dents are very grate­ful to ev­ery­one who pur­chased tick­ets or helped in any way to make this project such a suc­cess.
