The Rotary Club of Flin Flon donated seven sets of hockey equipment for Flin Flon’s Hockey Academy.
“Many of the kids in the hockey academy are there because they don’t play hockey and don’t necessarily have the resources to buy hockey equipment,” said Constance McLeese, superintendent of the Flin Flon School Division.
“The equipment generally stays with the academy, but while you’re playing hockey with us, you get hockey equipment.”
