Abbotsford’s Reign Valley Vixens are helping to brighten the days for those in need this Christmas.
In November, the team held two free roller derby bouts, titled D’Icy Business, at Tradex during the Extreme Snow and Sports Swap. RVV hosted the Sea to Sky Sirens, who travelled down from Squamish, as well as the Nanaimo Nemesis, and fans brought donations for the Abbotsford Food Bank for free entry. Several tonnes of food were collected for the Abbotsford Food Bank at this vital time of the year.
Through the Christmas Bureau, RVV has sponsored a local family – a mom and four year old daughter. The ladies are collecting a hamper of food with all the fixings for a Christmas dinner as well as gifts for under the tree.
And, through Coats for Kids, RVV is collecting clean, gently used winter coats, mittens and boots for donation to the Salvation Army in support of the Coats for Kids campaign.
The Reign Valley Vixens are a non-profit, Abbotsford-based roller derby league. Entering their fourth season, the Vixens play at the MSA Arena from April to July and welcome all fans to support their community causes.
