RCMP in Sooke are holding a fundraiser for Cops for Cancer

Sooke’s RCMP will be hosting a bottle drive in support of the Cops for Cancer’s Tour de Rock. All week, a pick-up will be parked on the front lawn of the RCMP detachment, at 2076 Church Rd., where those interested can drop off their bagged bottles. Staff Sergeant Steve Wright (pictured) adds the first donation. On Saturday, August 31, they will be at Sooke Elementary. The funds will be donated to the Tour de Rock’s fundraising efforts. The Tour de Rock takes place from September 21 to October 4, and the riders will be pedalling through Sooke on Wednesday, October 2.
