Cobb & Co coach pro­ject fails to meet fund­ing tar­get

Otago Daily Times - - REGIONS - BILL CAMP­BELL

A FUNDRAIS­ING cam­paign to build replica Cobb & Co coach for Waik­ouaiti has failed to meet its fi­nan­cial tar­get.

Grant Vick­ers, who was lead­ing the pro­ject, said a ‘‘Givealit­tle’’ page raised $1100 of its $40,000 tar­get.

He had hoped to raise the sum by the end of Novem­ber.

The coach had al­ready been 80% built and was to be dis­played out­side the new Her­itage Cen­tre build­ing next to the Waik­ouaiti Mu­seum.

De­spite be­ing dis­ap­pointed, he hoped other groups in Waik­ouaiti or Palmer­ston could be in­ter­ested in fundrais­ing and pro­vid­ing a venue for the coach, he said.

He asked any in­ter­ested par­ties to get in touch.
