The Club was represented by Senior Constable Rob Wylie, Youth Liaison Officer Port Stephens-Hunter Police District, Phil Wallis-instructor and one of the young boxers, Jomeca Lafaialii.
Phil spoke of the positive effect the training was having on local youth and said, “This cheque would be used to provide a boxing ring for the club.”
In addition to the presentation of the cheque, two attendees at the Happy Hour showed their generosity by donating two $50.00 amounts to show their support at the great job being done for youth in the area.
The Palm Lake Resort Raffle Group purchase vouchers from twenty four local businesses from Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest which encourages residents to connect and support these businesses, building mutual goodwill.
One of the organisers in the Palm Lake Resort Raffle Group, Rod Larkin told News of the Area, “Over the past six months, our group has donated to Buy a Bale for NSW drought affected farmers, the Pindimar/Tea Gardens Rural Fire Service and over the next two months funds will be raised to be donated to the Tea Gardens Free Clinic Bus.”
