Thank-you for your Generosity!

Chatham Goodfellows success over the last 64-years is attributed totally to
the overwhelming generosity of citizens in our community, and the dedication
of our volunteers.  Chatham Goodfellows appreciates the overwhelming
generosity to “Ensure No Child Without a Christmas”.

The late Laura Raymant  was an original knitter with the Active Lifestyle
Centre and each year Laura knitted mittens for Chatham Goodfellows.  When
Laura passed away, several members of the Active Lifestyle Centre stepped up
to the fill the void, and continued to knit mittens for Chatham Goodfellows.

Recently the CK Family Health Team held their annual Christmas luncheon.
The CK Family Health Team gathered 200 toys for Chatham Goodfellows “No
Child Without a Christmas” campaign.    In the photograph (L-R) Laura
