The event takes place in September at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice will be the beneficiary of the Sevenoaks Shopping Centre Lego Creative Challenge taking place Sept. 26 and 27 at the local Abbotsford shopping centre.

The event will feature corporate creative Lego builds by local businesses, a kids’ category and activities for families. Lego certified professional Robin Sather of Brickville DesignWorks will be on site building a giant Lego creation representing the work that Canuck Place Children’s Hospice does for the children and families in the community.

Now in its fifth year, the annual event has raised $40,000 to date to support pediatric palliative care.

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice – Dave Lede House opened its doors June 2014 adjacent to the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre to provide community-centred services.
