Recreation Opportunities for Kids (ROK) is five hundred dollars richer after a surprise donation yesterday by Agrium.

Executive Director Lynne Parker says they were one of a few that the company donated to.

"It was a huge surprise, I opened the mail and we received a cheque... so I called Agrium to say thank you so much, and they said that they chose a few different organizations and split up some funds that they had for the year," says Parker.

Parker says the donation is great, and will go toward helping kids get into the programs they offer.

"It just means there's going to be more kids who're going to be able to get into some recreational or leisure activities of their choice, so it's awesome," Parker says.
