THE Prenzlau Rural Fire Service was graciously supported with a $1000 donation from the Tarampa Hotel Social Club at their AGM on February 25.

The donation will go towards the purchase of crucial equipment and supplies for the small unit at Prenzlau.

Tarampa Hotel Social Club outgoing president Cluny Mcpherson said the club aims to provide an annual donation to support a local club in need through their weekly raffles and fundraisers.

“Over the year’s we’ve been making various other donations to clubs in need, volunteer organisations that need our help, we help them out we’ve done it for local schools, and the SES as well,” he said.

“During one of our meetings, I said, well, everyone knows that the fires are going on, and we should give the firies some money.”

The social club runs raffles at the Tarampa hotel each Friday and Saturday.

The club also raises funds for different events throughout the year, like Remembrance Day.

Mr McPherson applauded the generosity of its members and said the club is always looking for new members to continue to support local organisations each year.

“I’d like to thank our volunteers,” he said.

“Because of them we can afford to make this donation to the rural fire brigade, more members are always welcome.”
