Victoria Chinatown Lioness  had a very successful tree chipping.  It was cold and wet but Lioness collected  approximately $4450.00 with 467 trees chipped in two days.  We had a total of 28 firefighters over the 2 days from the Yates Street, Bay Street and Michigan Street stations and one of them even bought along his 5 year old daughter who helped us all morning!

Victoria Chinatown Lioness assisted Easter Seals BC/Y’s annual Chip- In for the Kids , celebrating 27 years of chipping Christmas Trees in Greater Victoria, Sooke and Duncan.  On January 7th & 8th, 2017  many residents disposed of their Christmas tree in an environmentally friendly manner at one of  7 locations.  Funds raised at this event benefit Easter Seals services right here on Vancouver Island.
