The Royal Canadian Legion Mount Benson Branch #256 continued their good works by providing for the health and wellness of veterans in Nanaimo. At the end of December the Branch delivered a $3,000 donation to Amber Adams of the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation. The funds were raised through gaming activities throughout 2012 and will help purchase equipment for Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). This donation means the Legion #256 has contributed more than $82,000 in support of veterans’ medical needs since 1990.
