Two youth from the West Shore are being recognized by the RCMP for their volunteering efforts and community service.

On Saturday, during the inaugural Sarah Beckett Memorial Run in Langford, 8-year-old Myleigh Crawford and her 5-year-old sister Saide Crawford set up a lemonade stand and raised money for the Sarah Beckett Memorial Park.

In total, the two young girls raised $150.

Meanwhile, 14-year-old Matthew Quigley was presented a plaque by Staff Sergeant Raj Sandhu for his many hours of humble volunteer service for the West Shore community.

In between his schooling and hockey, Matthew has volunteered over 1000 hours of his time to the Extreme Outreach Society, which organizes outreach activities for at-risk youth.

“It’s wonderful to see the young people in our community dedicate their time and effort to worthy causes,” said Cst. Nancy Saggar of the West Shore RCMP.

“These little good citizens deserve a round of applause.”
