Newfoundland Power’s annual Hard Hat Drive this month raised over $30,000 for cancer care.

The event, which took place across the province on Saturday, is part of the company’s Power of Life Project.

The money raised from the drive will stay in Newfoundland and Labrador and will purchase cancer care equipment at eight cancer centres across the island.

The funds will be used as follows:

- St. John’s: chemotherapy recliner chairs;

- Carbonear/Bay Roberts: automatic blood pressure monitor;

- Clarenville: vital signs monitor and family chairs;

- Grand Falls-Windsor/Bishop’s Falls: family chairs;

- Corner Brook: sleeper chair;

- Port aux Basques: vital signs monitor;

- Burin: vital signs monitor; and

- Gander: family chairs.

“The success of the Provincial Hard Hat Drive is a testament to the generosity of the people of this province. Cancer patients and their families will benefit from the sense of community shown by everyone who donated,” Newfoundland Power president and CEO Jocelyn Perry said in a news release.

“I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our hundreds of employees, retirees and family member volunteers, from St. John’s to Port aux Basques, and to our retail partners who generously supported our fundraiser to help those living with cancer in our province.”
