In the words of Greg Robertson, President of Mo55sKC:
THE Mo55sKC held its annual fundraiser paddling event at Mandurah’s Estuary Bridge foreshore on Monday 29 April. A great launch point with excellent BBQ/picnic facilities; something for paddlers and landlubbers alike!
This year the Yahoo over 55’s Bushwalking Club were invited to participate, and helped swell total involvement to over 70 for the event.
Despite a very blustery morning, which thwarted the planned 30km “around-the-island” paddle, kayakers ventured into sheltered waterways, and walkers enjoyed wooded tracks in the adjacent Len Howard Reserve. Afterwards, all congregated out of the wind at the BBQ area for lunch and yarns.
Mo55sKC supports CLCRF by combining proceeds from several fundraisers during the year. These funds are bolstered by great contributions from a craft club and a book club which have Mo55sKC members in their midst.
CLCRF’s money man, Kim Williamson, was at the event and gratefully accepted the $2300 cheque. Kim outlined Mo55sKC’s impressive, long-term support of CLCRF and cordially thanked all involved.
The amount raised this year is a club record, so well done Mo55sKC and friends. Your enthusiastic involvement and generosity made this a fantastic result.
