Hall Fundraising Update

Back deck of community hall

Total Raised to Date

$20,975 (87%)

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 the rear deck to provide shade and weather protection;
  • Add an extension to the 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.
