Siblings Kasey and Kalyn Bunville have a big donation they will be presenting to the B.C. Children’s Hospital during the telethon on June 3.

The two Aldergrove youngsters, aged four and six respectively, have been collecting bottles and cans for the cause since January and have more than $1,500 in total for the hospital.

The family was inspired by the care Kasey received at Children’s Hospital over the last two years in treating her cancer, which is now in remission.

They have collected more than $500 on their own in donations, and the additional $1,006 was the result of the Springfield Village People holding a one-day bottle drive for B.C. Children’s Hospital on behalf of the Bunvilles, in conjunction with the Township’s community clean-up day on April 21.

The “Springfield Village People” volunteer group were one of three groups in Aldergrove that participated in the community clean-up, and Kasey and Kalyn and their family also joined in picking up litter, and collecting donated bottles and cans, that day.

They are proud to be part of the Aldergrove community and thrilled to be invited to appear on the telethon this Sunday between 9 and 10 a.m.
