Sisters share the best of times. Ayja and Hayden Hugh shared their generosity with Nanaimo kids and their birthday party with each other. The sisters celebrated their April and June birthdays with a co-hosted gymnastics celebration in May. Rather than gifts, the girls asked their friends to bring a donation for the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation to be earmarked for the Paediatric Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). They successfully collected $80 for children visiting the Paediatric Ambulatory Unit or who might be staying in the Hospital. The Unit greatly appreciated the girls' contribution.
