Young hockey players in Saanich got a $20,000 boost last week thanks to a community contribution from the newly opened RBC branch at Uptown.

Pearkes recreation centre’s non-competitive hockey skills development program will benefit from the donation.

“This money will enable us to expand (the program) and build on it. That’s pretty neat,” said Coun. Nichola Wade, chair of Saanich’s parks, trails and recreation committee.

The Pearkes-based hockey programs are geared towards kids aged six to 12, with a focus on acquiring the skills to skate and play hockey.
