If the youngest patients at Surrey Memorial Hospital could talk, they’d have a big “thank you” for students at Queen Elizabeth Secondary.
The school’s annual Roots N Rhythms multicultural night in March raised $8,000 for the hospital’s neo-natal care facility. It was the single biggest donation to date from the popular variety show, and brings the total donations from Q.E. to more than $50,000 over the years.
Students presented the cheque to the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation Thursday (June 6) and then toured the neo-natal unit, which cares for premature babies and other high-risk newborns.
A ticketed event open to the public, Roots N Rhythms has been a fixture at Q.E. for more than a decade. It features a mix of music, food and fashion from around the world.
