One of the great pleasures of granting season is when our Board members get to visit the various successful grant applicants and deliver our GIANT cheque! The first one was delivered to the Mount Newton Centre where SPCF Treasurer Elaine Hughesman, and Board Director Darrel Couzens, were happy to make our contribution to the Garden Project. This project will make the garden at the Centre more accessible for senior clients, including raised beds to allow for a therapeutic gardening program.
