Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society Kwatcha Group member Gladys Laing gets linen ready for a sale in 2010.

‘Fantastic’ linens for sale

Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society's Kwatcha Group fundraiser set for Nov. 6 and 7.

With less than two weeks to go before their biannual linen sale, volunteers with Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society’s Kwatcha Group are busy organizing a plethora of items, including collectibles.

“My whole bedroom is full of them, hundreds of them,” group member Carol Gobin said of the small and round tablecloths she has been charged with sorting for the sale.

“We have received a lot more this year.”

The sale, set for Nov. 6 (9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and 7 (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) at First United Church in White Rock, is the group’s 33rd. Since 1999, it has raised “a good $150,000” for the hospital.

Group member Diane Perrie said the linens, bedding and collectibles that will be up for grabs over the two days next month are “fantastic.”

Donations are still being accepted, Perrie added. For more information, call 604-535-3090 or 604-531-1850.

Donations may also be dropped off to the society’s Superfluity Shop, at 15163 Prospect Ave.

First United Church is located at 15385 Semiahmoo Ave.
