A Kamloops group is hoping to upgrade the outdoor ice rink in Heffley Creek this winter. 

The Kamloops Outdoor Skating Association (KOSA) has launched a fundraising campaign for neighbourhood rinks in Heffley Creek and Westsyde. 

Money raised will be used for shovels, a snowblower, liability insurance, pavement sealing, skating aids for children and hosting events to attract new volunteers. 

They have currently raised just over $1,000 of their $10,000 goal, which will be split between the two rinks. 

“With the prospect of Covid-19 being here all winter, outdoor rinks could be a beacon for kids, families and community members to come together to have fun, be active and create memories all winter,” read the KOSA GoFundMe page.
