Last Fall Canadians proudly wore their poppies as a symbol of appreciation for the many men and women who devoted their lives to serve our country. Here in Nanaimo Joann Walton-Hatch of the Royal Canadian Legion Mount Benson Branch #256 recently delivered a portion of the money they raised through poppy sales to Janice Perrino, CEO of the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation. The $3,000 will go towards the purchase of medical equipment at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

Since 1990 the Branch #256 has delivered almost $115,000 to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation for healthcare equipment and programs that benefit veterans and their families.
