Sunday’s Victory Hall concert and fundraiser was a resounding success with more than 230 people filling the hall.February 21, 2014 4:25am
Tatura Civic Halls committee secretary Ian Grant said prior to the start of the event, he breathed a sigh of relief as the crowd started to roll in.
‘‘You never know how things will turn out. The response has been fantastic,’’ he said.
Mr Grant said the success of Sunday’s music extravaganza at the Victory Hall could not have been achieved without the support of ‘Friends of Victory Hall’ and local businesses.
Last week Mr Grant acknowledged the support of Tatura Pharmacy, Rodney Printers, Tatura Bakery and Lunches, Tatura Hot Bread and Viberts Mitre 10, who got behind the event by providing generous donations.
‘‘Their support was much appreciated and went a long way to ensure we were able to have a successful event,’’ he said.
Funds raised from the concert will go to the ‘Save Victory Hall’ appeal, to undertake much needed works on the rising damp problem in the Mechanics Institute Hall, which is part of the complex.
