Spectrum football, basketball teams get dirty for the love of the game

Spectrum Community School athletes will be digging in for their coming seasons with a spring compost fundraiser.

The junior varsity and varsity football teams and senior girls basketball team are taking pre-orders for April 11 pick-up at the school, when students will bag the donated, premium compost, created from yard and kitchen waste by Coast Environmental.

“The students already work so hard on the football field and basketball court, but they’re also ready to work hard at fundraising for upcoming season,” says Spectrum’s Sue Brennan, who hopes to raise at least $3,000 toward equipment and travel costs for the players.

The compost will sell for $5 for a 50-litre bag; those ordering four bags will also receive a fifth bag for free.

For more information about the fundraiser or to pre-order your compost, contact email Patti at chevbro@shaw.ca or Shawna at shawnaleemarie@shaw.ca or call Sue at Spectrum at 250-479-8271.
