The Bradner Community Club recently presented the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) with a $10,000 donation to help with the new CT scanner at Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

The funds were raised through the annual Bradner Flower Show.

Show chairperson Pauline Isherwood and Gerard Smit were on hand to present the cheque.

“The Bradner Flower Show is a proud local tradition,” said Liz Harris, FVHCF executive director.

“We are happy to continue to grow our relationship with such a longstanding organization. We wish them the greatest success for their 91st annual flower show.”

The Bradner Community Club hosts its 91st annual Bradner Flower show at Bradner Hall from April 12 to 14.

Check out the hundreds of daffodils on display as well as art, crafts, music and presentations by gardening experts.

Admission is $2, and all funds from the sale of cut flowers will be donated to the Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

The FVHCF raises funds for vital equipment and programs funded or endorsed by the Fraser Health Authority.

They serve the communities of Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.
