Club History   

Since receiving our Charter in 1984, the Club has helped with many good causes in our community. We have provided medical equipment for the local Hospital Foundation and donated bursary monies for the Upper Island Music Festival and to VIU students. We hold an annual fishing derby for under-12s and an Xmas party for high-needs children .

One of the first fund-raisers of the young Club was to start up a 'cut your own firewood'  project. With a forestry company providing the site, the Sunrisers manned a site from May to October and raised $15,000 for NDSS.

Soon after that the Club members cut, stripped and transported timber and built a playground at (then) Malaspina College.

The club was also one of the first sponsors of the Port Theatre in Nanaimo.

We continue to take pride in helping young children and their families find solutions to their concerns. Not everyone can make it on their own - sometimes they need a helping hand along the way.
