Hall Upgrade Fundraising
This page provides a single place to see what fundraising activities are being used to raise the remaining funds for the Hall Upgrade and a running total of the funds raised so far.
As you may be aware we are looking to raise funds in order to make some much needed improvements to our Memorial Hall this year, the 70th anniversary of the Hall. These are:
Make alterations to the rear deck by increasing its depth and new wider steps to provide improved connectivity with the garden; and,
Add a roof over rear deck to provide shade and weather protection;
Add an extension to eastern end of toilets to provide new level access storage for heavy items, chairs etc;
Carry out general repairs and maintenance work to the Hall around the area of the proposed additions.
Of the $99,000 needed for this work we have been lucky enough to be successful in being granted up to $66,000 from the Central Coast Council Community Infrastructure Grant program. We must also contribute up to $9000 in-kind labour contribution from our volunteers. Therefore we need to raise approximately $24,000 via other means.
With COVID-19 affecting our traditional fundraising methods we need to use online more this time. Here are the fundraising activities we have kicked off so far:
An Auction of Promises where services or items are donated and auctioned. Click here to see the list of promises and the highest bid so far.
