Bushfires, floods, a nasty virus and event cancellations. It’s about time we had some happy news on the South Coast. So here it is… just before the most recent chaos to rattle our shores, Milton Ulladulla Bowling Club, Mollymook Bowling & Recreation Club, Lake Conjola Bowling & Rec Club, Mollymook Golf Club, and the Milton Uladulla ExServos Club, supported by ClubsNSW, joined forces to raise funds for the victims of the recent bushfires to donate to the Shoalhaven City Council Mayor’s Relief Fun.
Clubs received donations of cash from locals and visitors alike, and donated the funds to the Mayor’s Relief Fund with many stories of generosity from the community.
One generous couple from Sydney donated $1,000 towards the Shoalhaven City Council Mayor’s Relief Fund at the Milton Ulladulla ExServos Club, and advised that they were also on their way to donate $1,000 to Tabourie RFS, and $1,000 to Milton RFS.
For many years the couple has owned a Holiday Home in Dolphin Point and they are forever grateful for the dedication of our fire fighters and all emergency services personnel.
The five clubs raised over of $17,000 together, and happily donated the funds to the Shoalhaven City Council Mayor’s Relief Fund. Plus, Mollymook Golf Club donated the proceeds from their Christmas Raffle to the five local Rural Fire Service branches, equating to $5,460.
The next fundraising event was the hilarious Comedy for Bushfire Relief, Peter Rowsthorn Show. The Milton Ulladulla ExServos Club was able to raise $4,420 thanks to the hilarity of Peter’s show and donate the funds to the Shoalhaven City Council Mayor’s Relief Fund.
Because of the generosity and support of the Mounties Group, Peter put on fantastic repeat shows at Bomaderry Bowling Club, the Milton Ulladulla ExServos Club, Club Catalina, Club Narooma and Club Sapphire, leaving the crowds in fits of laughter.
The South Coast Club’s raised a total of $20,452 together, and donated the funds to their Relief fund of choice being, Shoalhaven City Mayoral Relief Fund, Mayoral Eurobodalla Disaster Relief Fund, and Sapphire Coast Destination Marketing.
In a time of great need, competitors, the community and visitors all came together in the interest of supporting those in need on the South Coast. If we continue to support each other through these trying times, the community will remain strong. Continue to help those in need, and support your neighbours and local businesses.
