THE raffle for a new Quintrex tinny by Marine Rescue Narooma has come just time to help build a new pontoon and mooring at Mill Bay.
There is a real sense of urgency as the unit’s new 10m rescue boat arrives next month.
Each of the Marine Rescue units up and down the NSW coast again this year received a boat package from state headquarters to raffle off.
The raffle of the fishing boat package took place at Apex Park, Narooma on Saturday afternoon with Member for Bega Andrew Constance drawing out the winning tickets out of the big barrel.
The winner of the tinny was Brendon Crawford of Milperra while the second place prize of a $500 Visa card went to Richard Reid.
The third prize of a night for two at the Whale Motor Inn and a $100 dinner voucher went to a Ken Evans from Rye, Victoria.
The Narooma unit worked hard over recent months to sell 9200 tickets raising around $15,000 toward the new pontoon and mooring.
Constance congratulated the Narooma unit for a job well done.
“If we didn’t have the Marine Rescue then the taxpayers would be paying for Water Police to be patrolling up and down the coast – it’s a testament to the volunteers.”
