More than 100 cans of tuna and $180 were collected for the Surrey Food Bank this month, during an event Sept. 18 at White Rock's Central Plaza.

Touted as "an innovative and enjoyable way to 'downsize' or to find some real treasures," the Tons O' Tuna Car Boot Sale was organized by Seniors Come Share Society, Comfort Keepers and Compass Senior's Services, and featured music by Bobby Doucette.

The tuna collection is building on Comfort Keepers' Stop Senior Hunger food drive, which aimed to amass 1,000 cans of tuna by the end of June.
