Mates lend a helping hand
THE club community has banded together in light of recent events.
Coffs Ex-Services Club has lent a helping hand to North Beach Recreation and Bowling Club, following a vicious break-in on January 6 which saw thieves damage 14 of the club's 25 gaming machines so badly they were rendered inoperable.
The incident resulted in the Club's primary source of income being severely affected during their normally busy January period.
After receiving a call from Craig Wykes, secretary manager of North Beach Recreation and Bowling Club, Coffs Harbour Ex-Services Club gaming and compliance manager Greg Engil immediately instigated the process to loan the club 10 of their own machines.
Mr Sykes thanked the Ex-Service Club for their generosity.
"I am extremely grateful for the generosity offered by the Coffs Ex-Services Club board and management, and on behalf of the Board of Directors, staff and our valued members I would like to say thank you for this kind gesture of support when we needed it most," he said.
