Tim Hortons is bringing more smiles to London with the launch of the annual Smile Cookie fundraiser. For one week starting September 17, Tim Hortons restaurant owners in London, Dorchester, St. Thomas, Tillsonburg, Ingersoll, Thamesford and Norwich will generously donate all proceeds from sales of a special smiling chocolate chunk cookie to Children’s Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre. The $1 treat helps charities, hospitals and community programs across Canada in the cities where they are sold.
Now in its 10th year, Tim Hortons Restaurant Owners and guests have helped to raise more than $726,444.00 for Children’s Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre with funds directed towards specialized paediatric equipment, programs and services.
