Three Walnut Road Elementary students gave back to their community by organizing a fundraiser benefiting Surrey Memorial Hospital’s pediatric emergency department.

The Grade 5 students presented a cheque for $653.13 to the hospital at a school assembly on Feb. 11.

The three students – Sonia, Rachel and Jasmine (the parents requested their last names not be printed) – organized a community screening of Despicable Me 2 on Jan. 24, bringing in more than 300 people.

“We are very touched and are thankful for what the girls did,” Surrey Memorial’s Yolanda Bouwman said in a news release.
