Campbell River's Variety Coin Kid keeps on giving

Nick King, Campbell River’s Variety Coin Kid, received a $330.60 donation from Bank of Montreal staffers Chelsie Krentz, left, branch manager, and Leslie Morton, finance service manager.   The funds were raised over one day through client and staff donations. King is raising money for Variety-The Children’s Charity to give back to the non-profit which gave him a custom-built bicycle last year. King has raised $5,100 so far for Variety and is collecting donations until Oct. 31 through his website, www.variety.bc.ca/coindrive.htm - Kristen Douglas
