Councillor Rebecca Lennox shares a moment with her partner

Fundraiser for Councillor Rebecca Lennox

Benefit for Bexy will help with costs associated with cancer battle

  • Nov. 14, 2016 3:00 p.m.

As many people in this community know, Rebecca Lennox was diagnosed with a cancerous polyp, which she had removed in April.  She is slowly recovering and concentrating on ridding her body of this unwelcome visitor. This requires a strict diet regime, and expensive medicines.

“I could not have undertaken this journey without the financial support of so many friends,” says Rebecca. “It took some swallowing of pride to have to ask, again, for more help, but that’s how it is.  I feel both humbled and honoured that so many people care about me.”

The Lennox family is reaching out to the community for financial help through a ‘Benefit for Bexy.’

This will be held at The Rotary Room, Florence Filberg, on Dec. 10 from 4 p.m. until late.  We are at this time asking for any donations for a silent auction – art work, services – whatever you may be willing to contribute.   Please contact Hazel Lennox at 250 334-2352/spinningtales0@gmail.com by Dec. 2 to arrange pick-up or delivery.

As well as the silent auction, there will be a cornucopia of delicious eats and drinks accompanied by first-class entertainment;  something to please  all ages. Doors will open at 4 p.m. and entertainment will start at 6 p.m.   Rebecca and her family cannot express their appreciation enough for the support – emotional and financial – they have received up to now.  We are hoping this will be the final appeal to aid Rebecca in continuing  her healing journey to vibrant health once again.

For more information, contact Hazel Lennox at 250 334-2352 or via email at spinningtales0@gmail.com.
