Local singer Cole Armour, fresh off his appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, is a highlight of this year’s Timmy’s Christmas Telethon on Sunday, December 4 on Shaw TV. The 12-year-old Armour is a frequent guest performer at major functions such as the sining of the national anthem at the Nov. 28 Canucks game.

The six-hour telethon, hosted by Shaw’s Michael Eckford and Fiona Forbes of Urban Rush, Johanna Ward of The Express and Global National’s Dawna Friesen and Global BC’s Sophie Lui,  promises to both entertain and warm the hearts of viewers.

There will be special celebrity guests and the inspiring stories of some of B.C.’s children with special needs as well as recognition of the dedicated work of the many caring individuals and organizations that support the society.

The British Columbia Lions Society for Children with Disabilities is dedicated to the enrichment of the lives of children through a renewed focus on giving children abilities. This year’s telethon also features the debut of three extraordinary Easter Seals junior hosts from the Lower Mainland: 17 year olds Nathan Bragg and Natasha Kaweski and 26 year old Marco Pasqua. All three are Easter Seals Camp veterans whose stories will be shared during the Telethon.

The BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities assists children with all kinds of special needs. They fund province-wide specialized services including three Easter Seals Camps, three Easter Seals Houses and Patient Care Grants. They also assist in providing college scholarships to support youth with disabilities to further their education.
