BHP Billiton donates $1 million to LeRoy rink

 

BHP Billiton is contributing $1 million over four years to the rebuilding of the community hockey rink in LeRoy, which was destroyed by fire in May 2013.

“The LeRoy Rink has been an integral part of the community for years and we are proud to support the ‘Raise the Roof ’ project to rebuild the LeRoy rink,” said Chris Ryder, vice-president of corporate affairs for BHP Billiton Potash, in a media release.

The rink was home to a number of hockey teams, the figure skating club and it also housed much of the community’s hockey history.

“We look forward to continuing to build lasting relationships with our host communities, such as the Town of LeRoy, in the future,” said Ryder.

“This generous donation will help make the LeRoy ‘ Raise the Roof ’ project become a reality,” added LeRoy Mayor Brian Thoen.

BHP Billiton’s Jansen Potash Project is situated about 11 kilometres from LeRoy.
