Spot the ball update
Last year, Bowen Island student James Milligan raised money through a weekly Spot the Ball contest in the Undercurrent. He planned to purchase soccer balls and send them to underprivileged children. Once again, Bowen Islanders have come forward and offered to help. Christine Walker and family are off to Africa this week and are taking a hockey bag full of balls with them, along with a huge amount of soccer cleats and other sports supplies that Justin Walker (age 13) has collected over the last year. During March break, Phil, Katherine and Jasmine Gish will take another hockey bag full to Kenya.
Thanks to the support of all Spot the Ball players, Social Conscience Fair Trade balls have so far been welcomed with big thankful grins in Peru, Cuba, Mexico and Africa. To be continued!
