Almonte Valley Players announce $1000 donation to the Hub Hospice

DSC_1950-001After six successful performances of “Marion Bridge”, the Almonte Valley Players are pleased to announce that they have donated $1000 to the Hub Hospice comprising proceeds of the 50/50 draw, winnings returned by the recipients, anonymous donations and a contribution by the Valley Players.  At a presentation to the Board by President Peter Meyer and Director Kim Curran,  Hospice Chair Christine Bois expressed the board’s gratitude, and agreed that the production was a remarkable fit with the hospice ideals.
The Valley Players is a registered charity made up of theatre loving volunteers – actors, directors, designers and supporters who are mandated to provide quality theatre experiences and return a portion of all proceeds to the community.  In years past the VPs have supported the Almonte Hospital, Mills Home Support Services and the Lanark Food Bank among others, as well as providing an annual scholarship to local high school students pursuing studies in the Theatre Arts.
The Hub Hospice provides home-based, compassionate, volunteer support to clients and families facing life threatening or terminal illness within the service area and who have a personal physician, a diagnosis and a named caregiver.  Services will be provided in a confidential, respectful and client centred manner under the supervision of a registered nurse who is available at (613) 406-7020.
