The Berwick Curling Club has launched an ambitious campaign to "Raise the Rings" at the Kings Mutual Century Centre.

The fundraiser will allow the current three-sheet curling club, in operation since the early 1960s, and in need of costly upgrades, to relocate to a new, expanded facility in a future development phase of Berwick’s recreation complex.

To be named the Larsen Curling Centre for the Larsen family, which has donated $100,000 towards the cost of construction, the new facility is estimated to cost between between $1.7 million and  $2 million.

Federal and provincial contributions are anticipated to cover two-thirds of the total project cost, leaving the remainder to be raised locally.

The Raise the Rings project aims to generate $25,000 by encouraging current and former curlers to make a donation which can be spread over five years.


A variety of sponsorship levels are available and include gold, from $10,000 -$24,999; 
silver for $5,000 -$9,999; 
bronze, between $1,000 -$4,999 and friends, from $500 -$999. All donations are tax deductible and donations of $500 or more will be recognized on a plaque at the KMCC.

Anyone interested in helping  with the project in Berwick can contact Bryan at 902-538-1569, Tony at 902-375-2150, or Greg at 902-538-9181.
