Sandy Grant, BDCC Facility Manager, said “Residents of the care home were thrilled with the generous donation that adds an extra bit of sparkle for them during the Christmas season. The beautiful poinsettias will also bring smiles to the faces of staff and visitors to the facility over the holiday period.”

“On behalf of all the residents, their families, and staff of BDCC, and Prairie North Health Region, we offer a huge thank you to Q98 and the unions and businesses that enthusiastically and generously supported this wonderful gift,” Grant stated.
