Volunteer-run club aims to raise $100,000

Hardys Bay Club aims to raise $100,000 to resume business as a volunteer-run club after being forced to close its doors on March 23 due to Covid-19.

The club had originally launched an online campaign to raise this amount, but has since reduced the online target to $33,000.

The club has been pledged loans totalling $35,000 from individual members.

It has also applied for Government assistance for small businesses affected by Covid-19 for a further $32,000.

"This funding is a great start, but we need to raise more to cover the club's start-up costs and the unexpected repairs to equipment following closure," said community liaison officer Ms Treveen Brown.

"We also have plans for an exclusive club benefit concerts which we know will be well supported but we need to wait until further lifting of the Covid-19 social distancing restrictions.

"This will be a volunteer run club," Ms Brown said.

The committee is looking for anyone involved in maintenance, painting, cleaning, guttering, as well as musicians or anyone with a Responsible Service of Alcohol registration.

Mrs Brown said she had called on Petersham Bowling Club for ideas and advice.

"They are also a community-run, no-pokies club.

"They have just been doing it for a few years and they have learned a lot along the way.

"It is very much volunteer-run and we hope we can work closely with them in the future."
