Help us get the Cure Boating Club post-Canterbury earthquake rebuild completed - we're almost there.
After 11 years and a sustained effort by club members and the wider community to get this massive project over the line, our club rebuild is heading toward completion. Covid saw the entire build go on hold with the concrete only just poured and a long way to go. Great progress has been made, but now we need a hand to finish.
The last push will see this fantastic community asset fully operational and the growth of rowing in the Waimakariri can be realised. Your contribution ultimately supports the opportunity for young people to row in a community sport where personal growth and development is the bottom line, and where life qualities of resilience, dedication, commitment, and perseverance become increasingly more visible in the rowing journey.
The work completed to date is a testament to those who have been involved from the outset to rebuild our club. The sheer length of time it took to scramble back from the 2011 earthquakes, the significant challenges by way of consent and compliance to set up again in the heart of central Kaiapoi, the constantly escalating build costs, and the impact of Covid lockdown during the major construction period and all that came after, have been barriers we've overcome. Your help now, in supporting us into a finished club, is hugely appreciated.
We still require funding for:
* Balcony and balustrades
* Ramp and stair access to the building from the stopbank
* Upstairs internal fittings and lining
