Broad Bay Boating Club - Multipurpose Community Facility........ coming soon
The funding group members have been meeting regularly. We have been very busy with continued work towards funding the initial stages of the rebuild project. The total funds raised since the funding launch has been impressive! I’ll tell you later…..
October 2018 saw a very successful launch to the funding campaign attended by lots of club supporters, the Mayor, invited guests and community members. It’s aim was to raise awareness for the project within the local and wider community, and it kicked off what has been a very successful year.
Since then progress has included :
The on going Give-A-Little campaign -over $1200
A grant from The Sargood Bequest - $5000
A grant from the Otago Peninsula Community Board to pay for initial building consent - $2671
Producing and selling our own calendar - $6116 - well down Paul Dyer for such a huge effort
Submission and presentation to DCC annual plan, no money yet but they agreed to in-kind support – and that connection has been established with Parks & Recreation
Presentation to Port Otago – we received the generous offer of expertise and recycled materials, driving piles etc.
A significant donation from Southern Clams, Roger Belton BBBC member - $1500
Peter and Dianne Nees donated $1000 at Funding Launch Day
Other Funding Launch Day donations - $443
We received a Letter of Support from Mayor Cull
We attending the Otago Boat Show (display, sale of calendars, club badges) only $35 but good PR value!

On top of monies raised earlier than 2018 funding launch the total raised for the project is nearly $50000. To date this has paid for all the necessary planning and documentation. We are now ready for the construction phase.....
We are currently fundraising for Stage 1 & 2; building the new wharf platform & new changing rooms
