Pictou County Christmas Fund

Volunteers with the Pictou County Christmas Fund are hard at work planning this year’s telethon, which will be held for the first time at the Pictou County Wellness Centre. Committee members include, from left, Jackie Jardine MacKean, Brenda MacNutt, Jeff Nauffts, Debbie VanSickle and Ann MacGregor. Missing is Monique Sobey.

For close to five decades, volunteers have been coming together to present the Pictou County Christmas Fund Telethon.

The telethon is held to help ensure local families in need are able to enjoy a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, and this year is no different.
