Donations continue to come in as the 7th Annual Radiothon for Life continues at the St. Joesph's Hospital. The day has seen many groups and individuals stop by and make donations such as South East Eyecare and students from schools around Estevan. 

Recently, Lionel Bender and Kevin Thompson from the B&T Gunshow dropped off their donation.IMG_0812.jpgLorne Hansen donated $5,000 to the Radiothon.

"We're glad to be here," shared Lionel Bender. "We did this two years ago. We were able to come up with a little better than the $5,000 that we did two years ago. We brought it to $9,060."

He added that if the weather had cooperated, he thinks the total could have been higher. The funds came from The B&T guns show which was held at the end of March.

Among some of the individual donations were Lorne Hansen and his wife, Charlene, who made the trip down to donate $5,000.

"We donated last year and I was just on my way in and I thought I'd stop in and donate. The hospital has been good to me this summer, got my leg all fixed up. I've been going to the ambulatory care, I had an infection really bad in my leg. I ended up going to Regina and had surgery and here I am. I still have two legs."

Donations can be made in person, by phone at calling 306-687-0310 or online
