Welcome to our second bi-monthly newsletter, we are aware that in today’s digital arena we are bombarded with messages so we will keep this brief – in between newsletters look out for updates on our Facebook page.
We are very excited to receive a significant boost to funding with a $150,000 grant from the NZ Community Trust. This brings funding to $3.45m, which is 85% of the $4m required. Our closest NZCT venue is the Elmwood Trading Co at 1 Normans Road, so please show your support by supporting them.
Our campaign to address an immediate need for funds is progressing well, with $35,000 raised to date. Drawings are now being advanced to the next level and it is anticipated we will lodge building consent in the new year
Thank you to those who have already donated.
A fundraising garage sale will be held at Packe St Park , this weekend Saturday 4th November from 9 am (11th November if wet). There will be a range of bric a brac for sale. Come along and support the Pool Project.
