Every week, throughout the year, Berwick on the Lake Resident Council volunteers set up a table to sell 50/50 tickets to their Berwick neighbours. It is a lot of fun for the weekly winners, but it also generates a charitable gift that the Resident Council delivers at the end of each year. Last week five local charities were presented with a $500 donation each, in support of their individual causes. The fortune charities included Haven House, Loaves and Fishes, Nanaimo Community Hospice, Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation, and the Salvation Army.
