Members of the Caledonia senior boys’ rugby team accepted a donation yesterday.

Scotia Bank has given the team $4,000, something that coach Sean Hall said is going to be a huge contribution to the team.

The money will be used to put in permanent goal posts and pads – likely in the Caledonia Senior Secondary school field.

It is going to make it (rugby) a permanent fixture in Terrace,” Hall said.

Jane Beaver from Scotia Bank said the business is just doing what it can to be a part of the community.

Wherever we can, we do,” she explained.
