Young Hunter MacDonald invited his friends and family to a floor hockey party last month at Oliver Woods Centre. The special day marked Hunter’s 8th birthday. Inspired by his Mother Lindsay’s work as a nurse at NRGH, Hunter asked his friends to bring donations rather than gifts to his party. As a result, the young philanthropist presented $85 to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation to be directed towards the Paediatric Unit. His kindness will help children facing health issues stay closer to home.
