Jim and Barb Urquhart


Representing New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island

Jim and Barb truly care about their community, and make sure that everyone attending a collection event in Truro has a wonderful experience. They are well-known for keeping the refreshment area well stocked with treats. The amount of cookies, juice, jelly beans and other items enjoyed by donors is staggering, and Jim and Barb supply these extras out of the goodness of their hearts.

Through their involvement with the Lions Club, the dynamic duo has been volunteering for 22 years. They cover each event for a total of 25 events per year. A team of dedicated volunteers help with all aspects of the collection events, including placing promotional posters in the community, set up and tear down, donor flow, serving refreshments, and of course, bringing the treats. Jim schedules all the volunteers, and together with Barb, ensures that collection events are well prepared before the doors swing open.
