Beamsville boy donates contest earnings to CCWN

Nicholas MacMillan-Fagundes was pretty excited to hear he had been chosen as one of 12 winners in North America of a Canadian National Railway writing contest.

“I was super happy,” said the 12-year-old Grade 7 student at Jacob Beam Elementary.

MacMillan-Fagundes was named one of the winners of the CN contest where entrants has to write in what Christmas means to them.

“The holidays are about spending time with friends and family,” MacMillan-Fagundes summarized.

The 12 winners of the annual contest received $500 which they were to direct to the charity of their choice. His choice? Community Care of West Niagara.

“They are local and they do good things,” said MacMillan-Fagundes, who had run a food drive at his school for CCWN in the past.
