Ashcroft, This Is Who We Are, This Is What We Do

Ashcroft RCMP and Fire Department will be facing-off in a hockey game in support of local charity, Honour Ranch.
On January 21st, 2023, the teams will face-off in their annual family-friendly head-to-head charity ‘Guns and Hoses’ hockey match. The event will take place at Drylands Arena in Ashcroft and will include prize competitions (as well as the beloved on-ice hijinks) to raise funds for Honour Ranch, who provide mental health support to our first responders and military personnel from across Canada.
They support those who serve our communities.
To discover more about Honour Ranch and their valuable work, you can do so here:
The RCMP team soundly thrashed the Fire Department last year, said Constable Richard Wright, Ashcroft RCMP and head coach of the ‘Guns’ team.
Our team plans a repeat performance over the hosers and we hope to see you all on the big night!
Ashcroft Fire Chief, Josh White, was unavailable for comment at this time as he was probably cowering in fear in a corner somewhere said Constable Chris Buckland, BC Highway Patrol in Ashcroft and captain of the ‘Guns’ team.
In all seriousness, Honour Ranch is an invaluable service and we hope you can support them through your donations and by attending the game on January 21st.
The Ashcroft Firefighter Association is accepting donations on behalf of Honour Ranch. Anyone wishing to donate, maybe as a seasonal gift to a loved one, can do so via Etransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, anyone wishing to donate can do so via the Honour Ranch website by entering ‘Ashcroft’ in the dedication field.
