Heathcote MP Lee Evans has come to the party, donating $22,000 toward the new ATV for Scarborough Wombarra SLSC.
The club found themselves in hot water pre-season when they discovered their five year old ATV had rusted out and was no longer ‘sand-worthy’.
The club cleaned out their bank account, and, with the help of a secret benefactor, managed to scrape together the money to buy a new All Terrain Vehicle in time for patrol season.
A trivia night was held last weekend to recoup some of that money, raising $900 from a small but enthusiastic and generous group.
Then Sunday morning, Mr Evans made the trek south and handed Club President Bindi Adams a massive cheque which will cover the cost of the new vehicle and make a huge difference to the viability of the tiny Northern Illawarra surf club.
