CDMHA recieved $10,000 donation

The Clearwater and District Minor Hockey Association will be able to help more kids play hockey no matter their financial situation, thanks to a rather sizeable donation.

Bannister Pipelines and the inspection group presented a cheque worth $10,000 to the association last week, with the goal to give all children a chance to play hockey.

“It’s a good opportunity for us to be able to help those kids out to be able to play,” said CDMHA president Elijah Wicks. “Give everybody an opportunity no matter what their financial status.”

He added the funds would help to keep registration and other hockey fees down, as well as hopefully fund another hockey recruitment event like the Girl Power Hockey Prospects program, held on Jan. 9 at the North Thompson Sportsplex. The program saw many young girls on the ice to try out the sport and four signed up for the season.

The CDMHA thanked the support from Bannister Pipelines and the inspection group, as well as all who donated.
