Club helps with reno of camp for disabled
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.
