It was a lemonade stand with a charitable twist last Thursday.

A group of children living along Texas Road held a lemonade stand to help raise money in the battle against multiple myeloma. Neighbouring children also helped with the stand, which raised over $200. The proceeds will be put towards the Multiple Myeloma March that will be held in Windsor later this month.

“Their grandfather (Neil McGuire) was diagnosed with multiple myeloma a few years ago,” explained Kerri McGuire, mother and aunt to many of the children who put the stand on. She said he is doing well after a recent bone marrow transplant.

“He’s expected to be in Hamilton for three months,” she said.

The lemonade stand raised over $200. The children have also been selling bracelets they have been creating to benefit the fight against multiple myeloma as well.
