Small Langley school finds sweet way to help Philippines

Ecole des Voyageurs students raised money in a one day bake sale with the delicious French sucre a la créme.

Ecole des Voyageurs in Walnut Grove has found a sweet way to help out those in desperate need in the Philippines.

On Wednesday, at lunch hour, the students were selling home-made sucre a la créme, a very popular and delicious Quebec/French treat similar to fudge.

The small school with lots of heart raised $138 from the sale which the government will match.

“Our school wanted to do something to help the people in the Philippines and we’ve come up with a creative idea to raise money for them,” said administrator Marie Fraser.

She made two big batches of it and sold it all.

The government of Canada matches dollar-for-dollar all monies raised. The B.C. government announced it will also match money raised up to $300,000.

“Even though we’re a tiny school by “modern day” standards, we still feel that we can help make a difference. We think that every little bit helps.”
