Centre’s $60,000 target reached for new garage • By Caitlin Miles ROWLEY RESOURCE Centre has finally hit its funding target to get the garage rebuilt meaning more activities will be available. The centre needed between $50,000-$60,000 to rebuild the garage to allow for activities to move out of the main building, which centre manager Donna McAleer said is vital. In November 2015 the centre shifted to its current site on Rowley Ave and while the building could be used, the garage couldn’t due to earthquake damage. As a result they had to cut back on the amount of activities on offer due to the lack of space. “We noticed our numbers start to decline because there wasn’t a lot of quiet space for people to come and talk due to the activities having to be inside,” Ms McAleer said. Since the move, the centre has been fundraising to try and get the garage rebuilt. Grants from various organisations and groups have played a part in beating the $60,000 target. •Turn to page 4 CLINIC PHONE Fendalton 03 351 3535 Halswell 03 322 4326 Rangiora 03 310 7355 Ashburton 03 307 8949 House of Hearing LONG, HOT SUMMER PREDICTED Keep Cool Hot with Hot Fujitsu Deal Air Con on 8KW Heat PumP Conditions apply* A nice quiet solution from Fujitsu at a great price Fujitsu ASTG24L 8 KW Heat Pump for Just $2,999 SUPER BUY!
