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.

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.
