Association is close to fundraising target for hall upgrade

The Pearl Beach Progress Association has almost met its fundraising target for its hall upgrade project.
It has raised $20,490, 85 per cent of the way to its target of $24,000, towards the cost of improvements to its 70-year-old hall.
The work is expected to cost $99,000.
The association has received a $66,000 grant from Central Coast Council, must contribute $9000 in labour and must raise the other $24,000.
The improvements will increase the depth of the rear deck and new wider steps will provide improved connectivity with the garden.
A new roof over the rear deck will provide shade and weather protection.
An extension to the eastern end of toilets will provide a new level access storage for heavy items, such as chairs.
General repairs and maintenance work will also be carried out.
The association has raised much of the money through online activities.
The Promenade for a Purpose was raised $1207.
The Auction of Promises raised $5490.
A Long Weekend Gourmet Raffle added $1700.
Online book sales have raised $516.
A GoFundMe page also continues to accept donations.
