‘ALMOST there, but still some work to do’ is the message from the Friends of the Mirboo North Pool following the historic funding announcement of over half a million dollars by the Mirboo North and Community District Foundation for the proposed redevelopment of the pool.
Initially the Friends Of group had a goal of raising $500,000 as their contribution towards the redevelopment.
However, as the South Gippsland Shire Council’s negotiations with prospective tenders for the project progressed, the Friends became aware that they would need to make a greater contribution and increased their fundraising goal to one million dollars.
“We’re thrilled to be in our current position which is $850,000 raised towards our total fundraising goal,” said Tonya Wright, the president of the Friends of the Pool.
