Bottle drive for BC Children’s Hospital

South Surrey girls raise funds by going door to door in August.

Two South Surrey girls spent a month of their summer organizing a bottle drive to benefit kids in need at BC Children’s Hospital.

Alison Cradock, 13, and Breah Bakker, 12, spent all of August going door-to-door in order to collect bottles and cans for the fundraiser.

“We want the Children’s Hospital to have more room and we want the kids to have a better life,” Alison wrote in an email. “We also know people who have experienced cancer, such as Breah’s mom.”

In all, the two girls raised $220, which was mailed to the hospital on Aug. 29
