Wawa Ice Fishing Derby Supporting Local Hospital and Firefighters

Wawa's annual ice fishing derby is spreading support around the community.

The Wawa Ice Fishing Derby Committee has presented two cheques in recent days, the first being $2800 for the Lady Dunn Health Centre Foundation presented during the foundation's donor appreciation reception on Sunday.

Derby President Scott Popert says the committee always supports local charities, to "give back to the town".

Popert also presented a $2800 cheque to the Michipicoten Volunteer Firefighters Association last night.
