Hi, my name is Renee and I am the treasurer of Pakenham Little Athletics Club.
Unfortunately we were broken into and we have had thousands of dollars of equipment stolen.
Not only has this made it impossible for us to run our weekly competition but we have had to cancel our annual open day which is an integral part of our fundraising each year to purchase new equipment for our club.
Although we have insurance for a lot of the items that were stolen, we also had a lot of donated equipment or items that were purchased some time ago and are workout receipt. Sadly these items will not be covered under insurance. With any extra funds we plan to add our own additional security measures to try and ensure that we have everything in place until council has the funds in place to build the proper infrastructure and facility required to maintain a high standard of protection.
Any little bit counts and if you are a business looking to donate, we commit to shouting your businesses name from the roof tops (our socials) for your showing your support.
Thank you in advance from our committee and our athletes and families for your support during this time.
