Revelstoke Credit Union and Knights of Pythias present a $1,000 & $1,500 cheques respectively to Revelstoke Cancer Support Group.

It was a good day for the Revelstoke Cancer Support Support Group on Thursday, as it received $2,500 in donations from two different groups.

First, Revelstoke Credit Union CEO Roberta Bobicki presented a $1,000 cheque to Revelstoke Cancer Support Group members Ron Holoday and Ginger Shoji.

Later, the Knights of Pythias presented the group with $1,500 – proceeds from the Knights’ Thursday evening Bingo games.

The funds go to help support the group, which provides funds for medical expenses, such as travel, out of town accommodation and therapies, amongst others.

Shoji noted their organization’s focus on Revelstoke, saying the funding is “totally to help people in Revelstoke.”

“We are really, really pleased to help,” Bobicki said. “You’ve [helped] quite a few of us, either individually or through our families.”
