We Raised $54,030! Thank You Welland!

We are pleased to announce that the 12th Annual Julia's Hope Cup will be returning to our traditional annual pond hockey tournament and carnival on Saturday, February 18th, 2023 at Chippawa Park Pond in Welland.

Julia's Hope Cup is a celebration of the life of Julia Turner and her humanitarian spirit, while raising funds in support of The Hope Centre. This family event is open to anyone in the Welland community and is FREE to attend. 

Years ago, Paul Turner 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 honou
r the life of Julia and her inspiring spirit. Read Julia's Story

With the funds raised, The Hope Centre is able to assist households in Welland from the disconnection of heat and hydro, provide emergency food for individuals accessing their food bank and provide nourishing meals through their community lunch program.

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?

You can help us reach our $40,000 goal by participating in our online fundraising campaign
