News – Recent Fundraising Success

An integral part of Chewton’s Save Our Pool campaign fund raising has been through the Ugly Men Competition.

This Competition is based on the original pool fundraising effort from the 1940’s where the people of Chewton raised their own funds to build the local pool.

This 2010 Competition was successfully launched when 300 people came on a cold night to a great concert at the Red Hill Hotel. The performers were:-

  • Sweet Rock
  • Zip Top 9ers
  • Glenn Braybrook

The next event was a magnificent Seafood Banquet again at the Red Hill Hotel and an Auction of wonderful donated goods and performances by Mood Swings and a surprise visit from a former local Stan Monro.

In one week, the hard working “Save the Pool” volunteers raised $10,000.

This is an incredible effort. Well done to all the volunteers,  donors and those who attended and dug deep. Keep those donations and attendances coming. We’re making a difference!
