Sports league donates to 4 charities


The women of the Play it 4Ward league in Chatham recently finished up their sports season, but not before handing out nearly $2,400 to four local charities.

Chatham Hope Haven received $655; Noelle’s Gift got $635, while Westover Treatment Centre received $382.50 and the Chatham-Kent Women’s Centre benefitted to the tune of $327.50.

The women’s multi-sport league features four teams with one common goal: to raise funds for charity.

In place of standings, the league has a dollars raised tally. Each week of success means more funds raised for a team’s charity of choice.

On top of the monetary donations, all four team captains took part in the Polar Plunge in support of Special Olympics earlier this year.

The participants also donated a number of new and gently used gloves and hand warmers to Hope Haven this past winter, and collected clothes for a local family who lost their belongings in a house fire late in the fall.
