The North Dundas United Soccer Club ended their season with year-end celebrations for the players. They also celebrated health care close to home with a $1,082.75 donation to the WDMH Foundation’s Family Care Fund.

Presenting the cheque from the North Dundas United Soccer Club are (l-r): Adam McDonald, Club Secretary and Julian Whittam, President.

President Julian Whittam explains the importance of this amazing group: “The club runs youth and adult soccer programs in North Dundas. We are a volunteer-run not-for-profit organization that wants to contribute to making North Dundas a great place to live by offering an affordable sports program that kids and adults can enjoy. At the end of the 2023 season, we held year-end fundays for most of our age groups. Food and drink sales helped cover the costs of running the events and we wanted to donate any remaining funds back to the community.” 

“Thank you to the North Dundas United Soccer Club!” notes Justine Plummer, Manager, Direct Mail & Events. “We appreciate you combining fun and fundraising to Winchester District Memorial Hospital.”

“The Winchester Hospital is such an important part of our community and almost every single one of our program participants has used its services at one time or another,” sums up Julian. “The majority of our participants are children and having strong family care services at the hospital helps benefit our community.” 

The money will be directed toward the Foundation’s Family Care Fund. This fund does just that – ‘supports families just like mine’. Donations to the Family Care Fund are used where each gift is needed most:  to buy new medical equipment, upgrade existing equipment or meet other urgent needs at WDMH.
