Thank you to all of this year's sponsors, volunteers and to all those that attended the 2019 North Nanaimo Pumpkin Patch!
It was another great year with a load of pumpkins to choose from, hot chocolate, treats, games, family photos and face painting and we couldn't do it all without the help from our sponsors, volunteers and all those that join in the fun with their donations for these two very worthy causes. $2586 was raised for KidSport Nanaimo and the VIU Athletic Bursary in memory of our friend, Erica Murphy.
