SHOAL Centre a part of WestJet's "12,000 Mini-Miracles in 24 Hours" Campaign


The staff and residents at SHOAL Centre enjoyed a wonderful Christmas surprise on December 9! That day, WestJet Airlines carried out a worldwide campaign called "12,000 Mini-Miracles in 24 Hours" and SHOAL Centre was one of their first local stops. WestJetters in blue Santa hats dropped by with goodies to share and Christmas carols to sing. It was so much fun!

Christmas Volunteer Lunch














On Friday, December 4, Beacon hosted over 230 volunteers at our annual Christmas Lunch at SHOAL Centre. The event featured a delicious turkey meal with all the trimmings, special door prizes, entertainment, and a visit from Santa – it's a chance for volunteers to enjoy each other’s company and for Beacon to thank our volunteers, who generously share their time and talent year-round.
