Cancer society opens ‘exciting’ office in Whalley

WHALLEY – Those with the Canadian Cancer Society say they’re excited about their new office space in the area. The society’s new community office recently opened at the London Station complex, #150-10362 King George Blvd., Surrey.

 

The space is in a more visible location and helps the society in its desire "to better engage with the community of Surrey," according to the society’s Jessika Houston.

 

"Already since our move on April 4th, we have had many more people come in for information on our programs and services, have run a successful daffodil campaign out of the new office and have engaged with other community groups such as Mileau Family Services on some collaborative volunteer opportunities," Houston told the Now.

 

"We are very excited to see what opportunities this new office will open up for us."

 

The new office is on the ground level, making it easy for people to come in to learn about the organization’s support programs and other services. The phone number there is 604-583-2228.

 

In June, the society hosted a volunteer-appreciation event at Surrey’s Northwood United Church, where lLongtime volunteer May Kyryluk was given a "20 years of Service" certificate.

 

"May has been instrumental in our involvement in Surrey over the years and has been known to wear many ‘hats’," the group stated. "Over the years, May has helped us with the community office, the Relay for Life, the Daffodil Campaign, many special events and our Gift Wrap campaign, to name a few."

 

On June 20, the society hosted its 13th annual Surrey Relay for Life at the Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre in Cloverdale.
