KTW Christmas Cheer Fund: Receiving a Surerus substantial donation

These five groups will be helped by your donations: Y Women's Emergency Shelter, Kamloops Therapeutic Riding Association, Chris Rose Therapy Centre for Autism, New Beginnings Stroke Recovery and Kamloops Brain Injury Association. To donate, go online to kamloopsthisweek.com/cheer.

Christmas came a little early this year for the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund via a whopping $12,000 donation from Surerus Murphy, the company hard at work building the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.

The donation came in the form of an oversized cheque appropriate for photo opportunities, as well as a smaller, more bank-friendly version.

The funds were raised internally through the company’s 50/50 draws.

With 440 people working in the area, the company has been able to raise a substantial amount of money.

“Since September we’ve raised over $80,000 alone in employee fundraising from these 50/50s that we’ve given back to the community,” said Adrian Wall, Indigenous and community affairs manager for the company.

With construction locally expected to be completed in October 2022, Wall believes there will be plenty more donations to come.

Wall said the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund is an obvious choice for financial support.

The company wanted to support something with a Christmas theme and Wall is very familiar with the fund, beng a Kamloops resident.

“I’ve heard and read about it ever since it came about,” he said, noting the opportunity to support multiple charities with one donation made it a great choice.

“Collectively, it just creates more spirit, more willingness for others to get involved,” Wall said.

Christmas Cheer FundDonations to the KTW Christmas Cheer Fund can be made directly at the KTW office at 1365B Dalhousie Dr., which is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Donations can also be made online at kamloopsthisweek.com/cheer, thanks to a partnership with the United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo, which will also administer tax receipts to all donors.
