SURREY — The local arm of Operation Red Nose has been forced to cancel service tonight (Friday) because too few people volunteered to do the driving.

“Just a reminder that we are unfortunately NOT running our service tonight due to the low volume of volunteers we had for the night,” reads a message on the group’s Facebook page.

“We apologize for the inconvenience and encourage everyone who needs a ride tonight to contact an alternate designated driver service. We are still planning on running the rest of the campaign nights: December 9/10/16/17/31. Have a safe night, everyone!”

An earlier post to the Facebook page elaborated on the subject:

“Unfortunately, we only had enough volunteers to put together 2 driving teams, which does not meet our minimum requirement of 8 teams! The volunteer sign up seems to be doing well enough for the remaining nights though, and we remain optimistic that the rest of the campaign will be successful.”

Operation Red Nose Langley-Surrey raises money for Langley Gymnastics.

For service, call 604-532-0888.
