Ila Appleby



Ila Appleby is a Burnaby resident and former teacher.  Inspired by the sacrifice of front line works during the pandemic, Ila started organizing a 7:00pm cheer with her neighbours.  The Burnaby cul-de-sac has been coming alive each evening since spring 2020.


Ila shares her story of why she has been cheering every evening, how everyone in the neighbourhood has been inspired by the care workers and under what circumstances they will stop.
