Alma Doepel update_10519 Image

The Docklands Chamber of Commerce and Alma Doepel restoration team have had a busy few months raising money for the continued restoration of Docklands’ historic top-sail schooner.

The chamber has partnered with the restoration team in an attempt to raise funds for the completion of the project.

With at least a further $1.7 million needed to complete the project, Docklands News will be tracking the fundraising progress in each edition, throughout the year.

Throughout January the chamber and restoration team have been working on a shipping container display, providing information about the Alma Doepel’s history and restoration and charting the fund-raising progress.

The container was installed on Harbour Esplanade last month.

The Alma Doepel team also had a presence at the Jubilation Festival in December and the Monument Park mini-festival on January 17, raising money and awareness about the Alma.

Australia Day also proved to be successful for the team. Entertainment on the Alma Doepel barge was well received and a ferry service across the harbour attracted plenty of donations.

The chamber and restoration team also continue to champion the “Buy a Plank” scheme, which allows individuals or businesses to fund the purchase of a $500 plank for the restoration of the ship’s hull.

Fund-raising tally for December and January - $5566:

Jubilation Festival fundraising: $232
Australia Day fundraising: $4225
Monument Park mini-festival fundraising: $509
Watermark: $300
Black Cod: $300
