The Royal hotel is having a garage sale to clean up the basement.
As the basement cleaning was ordered by Nelson Fire Rescue, building owner Luke Menkes decided to put the money raised at the sale towards a fire-related charity. Menkes and Nelson Fire Rescue agreed the BC Firefighters Burn Foundation would be a worth recipient.
The Burn Foundation provides medical research and treatment to burn victims from across BC. At least six residents from Nelson have benefited from the Burn Foundation. The foundation also runs an outdoor camp for young victims of accidental burns. The Nelson firefighters will be assisting in sending a young burn victim to burn camp this coming summer.
The public is invited to check out the garage sale at The Royal on Saturday, December 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Buy a piece of the history of the Royal and or just drop by to make a donation to the BC Firefighters Burn Foundation.
The Royal is located at 330 Baker Street.
