Friendly ri­vals raise $16k

Pilbara News - - Opinion - Peter Long

The great Movem­ber Chal­lenge be­tween City of Kar­ratha staff and coun­cil­lors fin­ished at mid­night on Novem­ber 30.

There was great ri­valry be­tween the eight se­nior City per­son­nel and the six coun­cil­lors, with the ob­jec­tive to see which group could raise the most money for this worth­while char­ity.

The staff pulled ahead early with a car wash and a sausage siz­zle.

A long line of cars and some very gen­er­ous mem­bers of the pub­lic made this a great suc­cess.

The coun­cil­lors re­sponded with an op­por­tu­nity for the pub­lic to hit them in the face with a wet sponge or a cream pie.

Many seemed to en­joy this event greatly.

Other staff team fundrais­ers in­cluded a bar­be­cue break­fast, a curry cook-off and a guess the baby-mo com­pe­ti­tion.

Coun­cil­lors came back from be­hind with a cake stall, col­lec­tion tins at the Blanche and Ram­bla bars, and a fancy dress night.

In the end, more than $16,000 was raised, with the coun­cil­lors’ to­tal of $8414 just edg­ing ahead of the staff’s $7729.
