Realtors ‘Sweep the Rock’ to help London’s Homeless

Mission Services of London has maintained a strong and cherished connection with the London St. Thomas Association of REALTORS®(LSTAR).

For many years, Mission Services of London has been proud to offer the unique, handmade Homes for Hope pins, designed and produced for Mission Services of London by LSTAR. So far, over $280,000 has been raised through the sale of these pins to help the homeless in our community.

In addition to this, for the last 16 years, members, supporters and friends of LSTAR have grabbed their brooms and headed out to the Homes for Hope Bonspiel – all in support of our many programs and initiatives.

On January 19th, 2013, at the Ilderton Curling Club, the bonspiel – appropriately titled the ‘funspiel’ raised $11,085 for Mission Services of London.

“Mission Services has been providing shelter and assistance to the homeless and disadvantaged in our community for over half a century,” says Doug Pedlar, LSTAR President. “We’re proud to be counted amount their supporters.” Pedlar also acknowledged the past LSTAR President, Glen Gordon who was instrumental in setting up the first and many subsequent Bonspiels.

After 16 years of sweeping 40 pound granite rocks down the ice, LSTAR has successfully raised $124,885 for Mission Services of London. We are immeasurably grateful for their support.
