Brockville - The Royal Scarlet Chapter of Edwardsburg recently donated $1000 to The Brockville and District Hospice Palliative Care Service (BDHPCS). The BDHPCS offers local community palliative care and support, based out of Brockville General Hospital (BGH).
The Royal Scarlet Chapter is a Chapter Degree of the Loyal Orange Association. Its members run the annual fundraising dinner under the Chapter banner so the funds raised stay local—for the last nine years, to support this community’s need for palliative care service. This year’s donation of $1000 brings the nine-year total raised for palliative care to over $12,000.
Presenting the cheque to Joan Schwarze (centre), BGH Palliative Care Outreach Coordinator, are Royal Scarlet Chapter members (l – r) Ronald Shannon, Reg Conners, David Dudley, Clarence Barkley, Arthur Duncan, and John Arksey. Submitted Photo
