The weather has been cold lately, but there’s some comforting news for children.
Bancroft & Area Kids in Need has announced that its holiday fundraising campaign brought in $10,000. That money is helping to provide snowsuits and hats and mitts to about 500 kids. It also helped pay for toys at Christmas.
Kids in Need secretary Sherry Torrens says demand is up. This year saw a 15 per cent increase in clients, compared to last year.
