"I was pleased to attend the Peterborough Pregnancy Support Services gala and fundraiser,” says Dr. Kellie Leitch. “I commend them for doing their part in providing guidance and help to those who need their community health care services.”

The funds raised from the gala will help to pay for the PPSS expansion happening this year, including a facility upgrade, restructure of their corporate operations, and the hire and training of staff in order to open as a clinic to provide specific health care services beginning with the confirmation of pregnancy.

Trent Students Painted What Trent Means To Them In Parking Lot Where New Building Will Go

On Friday (April 22nd), Trent Central Student Association (TCSA) hosted a special "Paint Your Space" event at the Bata Library H Parking Lot on the Symons Campus at Trent University.

The event to paint parking spots was to celebrate the end of another school year and to say goodbye—and make their mark—on the famed parking lot H before it is removed in May for the building of the new Student Centre scheduled to open Fall 2017.

Trent student Chance Squires captured this great footage of the final painted spots that he sent to PTBOCanada. Watch the video below...
