“Timbit Bandit” challenges Outlaws to raise more money

Outlaws with the ATB Financial Outlaw Roundup are coming up with unique ways to raise money for the PES playground project.

Outlaws with the ATB Financial Outlaw Roundup are coming up with unique ways to raise as much money as possible for the Ponoka Elementary School playground project.

Most recently, Wayne “the Timbit Bandit” Marsden threw down the gauntlet to other “Outlaws” to raise more than his goal of $6,000, and he has already started.

Dressed up in an old-time prison costume and in a made-up prison Thursday, May 11, Marsden sought donations from Tim Hortons customers in the drive through lane of his store.

Support has been strong and customers, friends and those interested in the playground project have already donated more than $600 on Thursday. He is campaigning strong and he hopes to inspire his other “Outlaws” to raise as much money as possible.

“I’ve dropped off pledge forms throughout the town,” said Marsden.

“I challenge them to beat me,” he added.

Staff at the store are in full support of his goals and Marsden said they came up with the idea to dress up and seek donations in the drive thru lanes.

“I’d love to see that playground built,” stated Marsden.
