Club helps with reno of camp for dis­abled

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Gareth McKnight

A group of Rock­ing­ham scooter en­thu­si­asts have raised $1500 for a lo­cal camp for dis­abled chil­dren and vol­un­teered to un­der­take ren­o­va­tion work on the fa­cil­ity them­selves.

The Coastal Scooter Club uses the Al­fred Hines Camp for Dis­abled Chil­dren as a venue to host its three-day Bri­tish­style scooter rally ev­ery year, with par­tic­i­pants com­ing from all over the State.

The group de­cided to show its ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the use of the camp by lend­ing a help­ing hand, with vol­un­teers work­ing over a weekend last month to spruce up the cen­tre.

The work in­volved paint­ing the dor­mi­tory rooms, con­cret­ing paths and other main­te­nance work around the fa­cil­ity, in­clud­ing the con­struc­tion of a sand pit.

Ar­guably the big­gest job came in the form of over­haul­ing the main hall, with the wooden floor scrubbed, sanded and var­nished.

Coastal Scooter Club mem­ber Mark Leahy thanked all the vol­un­teers who took part.
