Alma Doepel fundraising update

29 Oct 2015

Alma Doepel fundraising update Image

It’s been a busy month for the Alma Doepel restoration team, with two professional shipwrights currently working full-time on the project.

Restoration director Peter Harris said the two shipwrights had been working full-time since $40,000 was raised at a gala fundraising luncheon in August.

Mr Harris reported Alma’s “knees” were now in place on her starboard side and preparations for planking the starboard side were also completed. The first two planks have been steamed into shape and fitted.

The Alma team has also launched a new crowd-funding campaign, hoping to raise $7000 for materials needed to construct a new course yard, a 15 metre long horizontal spar on the foremast.

Mr Harris also said October had seen a range of supporter club functions including an annual dinner, this year celebrating the Alma Doepel’s 112th birthday, a watercolour artists’ workshop, a visit

from Melbourne Urban Sketchers and ferry visits during the Seniors Week festivities.

October also saw the first update of $100,000 marked on the Alma Doepel shipping container on Harbour Esplanade.

The fundraising tally for October is $3962.50

Alma Doepel Supporters Club: $2000
Greentram Software Pty Ltd: $500
Fredrick Doepel: $500
Peter Schoner: $500
Robert Carter: $300
Barbara Dann: $62.50
