“Ramp It Up!” Wrap Up


Our 3rd biennial “Ramp It Up!” fundraiser in support of Lunenburg’s Second Story Women’s Centre has been an incredible success! Our School was unsure of how the COVID-19 restrictions, which required us to host a “virtual” event, would effect this year’s fundraiser. We are truly bowled-over by our community’s engagement and support.

Our goal was set at $4500.00, and thanks to the very generous community support we were able to exceed this goal and raise over $5000.00. 100% of the proceeds go to the Second Story Women’s Centre. We thank all of the bowl purchasers and donors!

We are truly grateful for all of our volunteers and artisans who made this event possible. A special “Thank You” to Douglas Bamford who led this effort, and who enlisted others to assist him in creating over 100 bowls. We are also grateful to the many local Artists who contributed their handsomely decorated pieces, and to our students who made some of our beautiful bowls. Lastly, a big “Thank You” to The Pottery Supply House of Oakville, Ontario, for its generous donation of clay.

Our School is incredibly proud to be able to provide this assistance to Second Story Women’s Centre, especially in these COVID-19 times, and we look forward to an in-person “Ramp It Up!” in 2023.
