VIDEO: Lake Cowichan’s firefighters play the midgets in foodbank fundraiser

Two big fundraisers, by the Lake Cowichan Fire Department, earned cash-aplenty for the Lake Cowichan Food Bank April 22.

A barbecue at the Country Grocer big sale and community day and the annual hockey game, where the firefighters play the Lake Cowichan midgets, raised $2161.90 for the foodbank and collected a pick up truck of non-perishable food as well.

The 50/50 winner at the hockey game donated back the winnings of $275 and the Lake Cowichan Kinsmen also donated $200.

On top of that, the LCMHA midget hockey team won 9-6 .
