Westminster United Church and Wolseley Community response to the fires

Thank you to everyone who came out to the community BBQ on April 30th. Community response was generous as Wolseley neighbours and Westminster folk came together to donate clothing, household items and money, as well as share food and enjoy each other’s company. Those who wished to do so, were invited to participate in a focused conversation and debriefing about the fire experience.

The cash collected was very generous and included $250.00 donated by the fire fighters. Each household has taken what they can use of the goods donated and what is left will be donated to the Bell Tower Community Café. The cash will be shared among the six individuals directly affected by the fire — four adults and two children. Costs associated with the BBQ were covered through donations specifically made for that purpose.

Once again, Westminster thanks all for their generous care and support of our neighbours.
