Victoria’s Quilts Canada is a non-profit group providing handmade quilts for people living with cancer of all ages. The quilts we provide are made by volunteers quilters who work independently or in groups.
The work we do is generously supported by sponsors, individual donations and groups fundraising activities. We deliver the quilts at no cost to the requestor or the recipient.

Our donors help make health care close to home a reality! Many people are surprised that the provincial government does not fund everything that Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) needs to provide compassionate, excellent health care – including the purchase of medical equipment. That’s where the WDMH Foundation comes in. We are grateful to work with generous donors every day.
Proceeds from the 2022 Kin Club of Russell Catch the Ace lottery will be used to help purchase much-needed medical equipment for WDMH.
