A group of friends from Gordon Greenwood Elementary School went out caroling along Candy Cane Lane (206 Street and 93 Avenue) in Langley during the Christmas season.

And they raised money for a good cause in the process.

In all, 20 children participated, raising $210 for Langley Hospice Society. They recently presented the funds to Sandra Castle, executive director of the society.

It was a wonderful evening, said a spokesperson for the group.

One neighbor was reportedly very touched because her husband had been in the hospice residence recently.

She said the Langley Hospice was wonderful to her and her family and was clearly moved by the children’s efforts.

“Bless these children for doing this, it’s made my night,” she told them.
