Westmount Elementary School's Generosity Club has been a huge contributor and supporter of local and international charities, and some of their members received a big surprise Wednesday morning.  A free trip to Vancouver to be part of the WE Day celebrations happening there October 18th.

14 students from the Generosity Club and some staff will be on board for the trip.  To say they were surprised would be an understatement. 

"I was completely overwhelmed. I think stuttered a lot," said DebbieTaylor-French a teacher advisor to the club. "They had to repeat things many times for me."

Much like Taylor-French, the students couldn't believe what was happening, and we're too shocked that they were heading to Vancouver.

"It's amazing! I didn't know anything was coming," said Eden Payne, one of the students heading to Vancouver. "It's pretty cool."

Now, the kids and staff selected get to travel to Vancouver for WE Day on October 18th and attend the leadership conferences with all flights, meals, and accommodations covered by WestJet.

This year's speakers at the conference will include actor Martin Sheen, singer Grace Vanderwaal, and the band Hedley.

You can learn more about We Day on their website WE.ORG.

The Generosity Club has done some exceptional work in the community.  One of their most notable accomplishments was raising an $10,000 to help build a school in Kenya. They have raised close to $20,000 for other organizations as well.

"Right now were doing the FCC food drive, we've done Operation Christmas Child, we adopted a family last year, and we've done some stuff with Riverside mission," said Taylor-French. "We just did little thank you cards and have a great day cards and gave them some mitts and stuff. So they've done lots of stuff over the past 5 years, we basically go with what the kids want to do to make a difference. That's what we do."
