Greetings from Paul & Tina Turner
Julia's Hope Cup has traditionally been an annual pond hockey tournament at Chippawa Park in Welland on Family Day weekend. It is a celebration of the life of Julia Turner & her humanitarian spirit, while raising funds in support of The Hope Centre.
Years ago, Paul created the Hope Cup Pond Hockey Tournament to raise money for the Hope Centre. This festival gathered families in the community for classic outdoor Canadian pond hockey with an indoor silent auction and amazing prizes donated by local businesses. The name changed 10 years ago to Julia’s Hope Cup after Paul’s daughter Julia passed away, to honour the life of Julia and her inspiring spirit.
With the funds raised, The Hope Centre is able to assist households in Welland from the disconnection of heat and hydro, assisted individuals through their food bank and provided hot meals through their Community Lunch program.
The Welland community looks forward to Julia's Hope Cup every year and this year is no exception and so, it was decided, for this year only to turn our event into a Virtual Escape Room event!
This year has been a very difficult year for so many, please consider your neighbours in need and help us support The Hope Centre once again! Can we count on your support?
