Gold Winner Nova Scotia SPCA
Silver Winner Hal-Con
Bronze Winner IWK Health Centre
Volunteering is its own reward, but it doesn’t hurt if cute animals are also involved. Once again the SPCA takes top prize (for the fourth year in a row) when it comes to our readers’ choice in volunteering. The SPCA always has a range of helpful hands needed, from fundraising to...get ready for it, “cat cuddler and dog walker.” New to this category in silver place is science fiction convention Hal-Con. In between the visiting celebs and cosplay hootenanny the convention’s annual charity auction helps raise funds for the IWK (bronze winner) and Kids Help Phone.
