The annual Bishop’s Company Funspiel hit double figures this year as the annual event reached its tenth anniversary.

Sixty-four curlers from across Niagara diocese gathered at the Hamilton Victoria Curling Club Hamilton for the sixth consecutive year.

The 16 teams included seasoned veterans, as well as those curling for the first time. The day long event included something for everyone ­—curling, food, draws and a little slipping around the ice.

It was all for a good cause, to support The Bishop’s Company Endowment Fund.

The Fund assists clergy, licensed lay workers and their families who are facing extraordinary situations and for specific purposes. These may include extended counselling, unusual medical requirements and support in a situation of extreme stress or financial crisis. All matters are handled directly by the Bishop in a confidential manner.
