Officials from Rick Hansen Public School in the city’s south end are hoping Londoners come out to help them raise money for a good cause.
The school is holding its annual vendor show this afternoon, with the goal this year to raise money to buy the school a new playground, after its previous playground was removed for safety reasons.
“Some of the options that we are liking range between 60 to $80,000 and even higher than that. We wouldn’t even be able to start committing to buying the equipment until we had at least $20,000.”
Those in attendance can also enjoy pizza, other snacks, raffles, and a gift wrapping table.
Today’s vendor show is currently underway and runs until 7:30 tonight at the school on Ponderosa Crescent.
