Peterborough Woman Auctions Off Driveway For Great Cause Fuelling Others To Do The Same

Writer and journalist Jeanne Pengelly has done a great thing that has inspired others. Blue Rodeo is playing at the Peterborough Memorial Centre tonight (August 8th) for Trent University's 50th anniversary celebrations, but there is no parking available at PMC since the Peterborough Exhibition is on at the same time at Morrow Park. So Pengelly is auctioning her driveway on Morrow St. near PMC to someone who wants to park close. And all the money is going to charity...

And Pengelly doing this has inspired others to pick a charity and do the same. Like a person on McGill St. who did this...

Further evidence that Peterborough people are amazing.
