Money raised supports local groups

The Hope Eagles recently gave away over $52,000 to more than 30 organizations

Every time I pass the Eagle’s hall on Fort Street, I wonder what they’ve done with the money they raise through their bingos and meat draws. When I was told that they were having a gathering on May 24th to distribute the money they raised I was curious to see who got what and how much of it went to groups right here in Hope.

What a surprise! Between the two groups of Eagles they gave away over $52,000 to over 30 groups. For a small town like Hope this seems to me to be a major contribution. It is so nice to see that the money raised locally is supporting everything from children’s groups to the elderly, sporting groups and support services for those in need.

Well done Eagles.
