The Moravian Church in Nain received a snowmobile for its use earlier this month.
The snowmobile was acquired through the fundraising efforts of a former Nain resident.
Colleen Uvloriak spearheaded the fundraising efforts.
She says that when her brother passed away there was no transportation available to take the coffin from the church to the graveyard.
This prompted Uvloriak to begin acquiring funds to get a snowmobile for the church so this doesn’t happen to anybody else.
Uvloriak and others in Goose Bay went to businesses and raised $1,100 for the snowmobile.
She says the snowmobile is also for the use of community elders to get to and from the church.
