School raises funds for child with cancer

Team Emma is looking for your empties. A bottle drive is on for Emma Smith, a nine-year-old Saanich girl diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer.

All funds will go to travel expenses related to her and her family’s travel bills incurred while she is away for regular chemotherapy and radiation treatments at the B.C. Children’s Hospital and B.C. Cancer Agency in Vancouver.

Team Emma, consisting of staff and volunteers from her school, Cloverdale Traditional School, is organizing a number of fundraisers for Emma, including the bottle drive where drop-offs can be made at the carport of 1280 Palmer Rd., from Jan. 6 to 13.

Lilac ribbons are also available by donation at Pemberton Holmes at 150-805 Cloverdale Ave.
