Brockville – Jean Sutcliffe of Maitland, Ontario decided she wanted to give back to Brockville General Hospital’s Cardiovascular Program. What better way to do so than by hosting a traditional British “Bring and Buy Sale”.
One might ask, “What, exactly, is a Bring and Buy Sale?” According to the Collins English Dictionary the definition of a Bring-and-Buy Sale:
Is a sale to which people bring things for others to buy usually in order to raise money for charity.
And, buy they did! Ms. Sutcliffe held the event at her beautiful home in Maitland, Ontario on Wed., Nov. 8th, 2017 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. With the help from co-organizers, Sheila Brokloff, and Shirley Ashenden, an astounding $4,610.00 was raised at the event for BGH’s Cardiovascular Program!
The BCP receives no government funding and relies solely on generous community donors, and hardworking, dedicated groups and individuals such as Jean Sutcliffe’s Bring and Buy Sale.
