Eight-year-old Kyle Fenwick delivers $121 donation collected at his birthday party to the Paediatric Unit at NRGH.
When Kyle Fenwick invited his friends to his Mad Scientist-themed birthday party he insisted they bring a donation rather than a gift. When preparing for his party, he told his mom that he wanted to do something for children on his special day. Thus began a plan to raise funds for the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH) Paediatric Unit, and children who would be visiting due to ill health.
As a result, 8 year old Kyle presented $121 to Denise Pond of NRGH Paediatrics. Denise, Clinical Coordinator for the Unit, said “what a fantastic way to celebrate your special day, and what a tribute to the character of this young boy. This gift will give comfort to the many children who visit the Unit under trying circumstances.”
