Alma Doepel update

30 Sep 2015

Donations towards the Alma Doepel restoration fund have decreased over the last month, following a record amount received in August.

Almost $5000 was donated towards the cause last month, compared with a whopping $66,000 donated in August.

A large percentage of this figure was raised through a gala luncheon held at Etihad Stadium in August, along with an individual donation of $20,000 from a supporter of the project.

According to restoration director, Peter Harris the funds raised at the luncheon represent three weeks of required fundraising.

“This is based on the rate required to have Alma back in the water next year and at the current rate of fundraising it will take 17 years to complete the project,” Mr Harris said.

“Raising funds to complete Alma’s restoration requires community support. We have a variety of sponsorship packages available for individuals, corporations and other organisations to facilitate this,” Mr Harris said.

He encouraged anyone interested to visit the restoration site, describing it as a “real eye opener” and said most visitors were amazed such a significant and substantial project was being undertaken in Docklands.

Anyone interested in learning more about the project can contact Mr Harris on 0427 829 134 to arrange a visit to the shed and learn more about how you
can help.
