Charity funds

The Heart and Stroke Foundation, a volunteer-based health charity, leads in eliminating heart disease and stroke, and reducing their impact through the advancement of research and its application, the promotion of healthy living and advocacy.

Throughout its history, the foundation has relied on the generous donations of millions of Canadians. One of its most recent donations came from the Renaissance retirement residence in Willoughby which has donated more than $1,000 in 2007.

The annual Christmas craft fair alone raised more than $800. Allegro, which owns the Renaissance and many other retirement residences throughout Canada, has chosen the Heart and Stroke Foundation as its corporate charity.

Renaissance marketing manager Nicole Severin, said, “We are so honoured to be able to donate these funds, so that research, treatment, and prevention continues to develop. The Renaissance is proud to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and to ensure that growth goes hand in hand with the development of the surrounding community.”

The foundation can be reached at 604 591-1955.

Car torched

A 1980s-model white Chevy was torched in Langley City on Saturday night.

City fire crews were called around 8:30 p.m. to 20041 55A Ave., where the older car was fully ablaze.

The vehicle was a total loss, said City fire chief Bruce Dundas. Langley RCMP are investigating.

Firebugs have been busy in the City and in Aldergrove over the past month, setting vehicles and dumpsters on fire.
