School seeks bike donations

Seaview Elementary School in Lantzville is  a hub of activity these days.

The school is asking for donations of bicycles for five- to 13-year-old children so as many as possible can be involved in the triathlon club.

Twelve individuals and five teams began training the end of May for the June 26 Qualicum Beach Triathlon.

School staff would like to have bikes and helmets available for any child to use and train with, even if they aren’t participating in the event.

Seaview is also hosting a bottle drive and barbecue June 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the school parking lot, 7000 Lantzville School Rd.

Anyone wishing to donate a gently-used bicycle or helmet, or barbecue fixings, please e-mail Cheryl Morch at or call 250-933-4894.

For more information, please call the school at 250-390-4022.
