Toy Drive for Keian’s Holiday Wish 

It is that time of the year when we start collecting donations for the Keian’s Holiday Wish Toy Drive. The donations helps brighten the holiday season for sick children and their families.

Donations from the toy drive will go to B.C. Children’s Hospital and Surrey Memorial Hospital. The yearly campaign of giving is held in memory of six year-old Keian Blundell, an honorary member of the RCMP, who lost his battle with leukemia in 2014.

The 2023 Toy Drive is being organized by members of the Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit and Youth Unit.

New, unwrapped toys (suitable for all ages up to and including 18), cash donations, and gift cards will be gratefully accepted until December 14. People can drop off donations at the Surrey RCMP’s Main Detachment or at one of three District offices in Whalley/City Centre, Guildford, and Newton. The Blundell family has also set up an Amazon Wish List for those who wish to give online.

Three community donation events will be held in support of the Toy Drive this year at the Guildford, Newton, and South Surrey Superstore locations on Friday, December 8th, from 10 am to 8 pm.

Since 2017, close to 11,500 toys and $39,500 in cash donations have been collected by the Surrey RCMP for the toy drive. For more information, visit Keian’s Holiday Wish Toy Drive 2023 on Facebook.

Applications are now open for vendors, non-profits, exhibitors, sponsors, and performers

 

The 13th annual Surrey Tree Lighting Festival & Holiday Market presented by Concord Pacific has been extended to two days in 2023. The festival will be held at Surrey Civic Plaza on Saturday, November 25 and Sunday, November 26 from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Applications are now open for holiday market vendors, non-profits, exhibitors, sponsors, and performers to participate in the festival.

“On behalf of Council, I am pleased to announce the expansion of the Surrey Tree Lighting Festival into a two-day event,” says Mayor Brenda Locke, “We are proud to produce events that are so well received by the community and are excited to help create holiday memories for event attendees and residents of Surrey.”

The Surrey Tree Lighting Festival & Holiday Market has extended in response to strong interest, support, and feedback from the community. This year, the festival will provide two days of free entertainment, children's activities, food trucks, rides, and photos with Santa. In 2022, the event drew a crowd of over 20,000 attendees and anticipates a larger turnout in 2023. The tree lighting ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, November 25, and the festival will extend into Sunday, November 26 with the illuminated tree remaining on display throughout the weekend and into January 2024.

Organizers welcome participation from small businesses, community organizations, musicians, dancers, and corporations for the upcoming festival. Local artisans can apply to display and sell their products in the Holiday Market, a 200-ft tent on Surrey Civic Plaza. To apply, and for more information visit www.surreytreelighting.ca/get-involved.
