South Waikato News - - NEWS -

The South Waikato Coun­try Mu­sic Club is putting on a con­cert to raise funds for a wor­thy cause.

Club pres­i­dent Les Whyte said the con­cert will raise funds for the Pu­taruru vol­un­teer Fire Bri­gade.

‘‘We will have 20 acts singing great songs from yes­ter­day and to­day,’’ Mr Whyte said.

The con­cert has re­ceived great sup­port from Pu­taruru busi­nesses, which have do­nated prizes for the raf­fles.

‘‘Last year we put on a sim­i­lar con­cert, with pro­ceeds go­ing to our lo­cal St John Am­bu­lance.

‘‘This year we de­cided to raise money for our lo­cal fire bri­gade, be­cause they are vol­un­teers that do a great job for our com­mu­nity,’’ club sec­re­tary Bar­bara Whyte said.

En­try into the con­cert is free, and there will be over 20 raf­fles with great prizes.

‘‘All pro­ceeds from the raf­fles will go to our re­cip­i­ent,’’ Mrs Whyte said.

The club have a busy year ahead of them, with their 40th birth­day cel­e­bra­tions also in the mix.

The group are also pre­par­ing their birth­day bash, which will be held in March.

The club, which boasts 60 mem­bers, will hold the fundrais­ing con­cert at the Plaza The­atre in Pu­taruru on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 3, start­ing at 1pm.
