Big thanks to Hospice for their wonderful support of the Kamloops Area. What a great visit our new President Rob Lemire & Board Member Hugh Fallis had with Kamloops Hospice Association’s Board Chair Fred Legace & Executive Director Wendy Marlow this past week when we dropped off a cheque to support this essential community service!

BCICF Executive Director Rob Miller was thrilled to visit the BC Wildlife Park & present them with their Community Project Grant Funding to assist in the purchase of a portable x-ray machine for their animal rehabilitation centre. We hope this helps make a difference for all the wildlife in their care! Funding for this grant came from the Carolyn Scarborough Memorial Fund.
