The Coffs Harbour  Old Boys Association made a recent donation to the Club of $30,000 to assist with recent renovations to the upstairs of the Club.

The Old Boys Ass. was formed back in the early Eighties as a number of members were retiring from Patrolling and competing and still wanted to contribute to the Club.

A number of social events were held over the years and turned into fundraising events and still today the members are doing raffles at the Greenhouse Tavern on Friday afternoons, they have been doing the raffles at the Greenhouse for almost 30 years. The team is getting older and slowing down but over the years have raised approx. $357,641.00 and supported the Club with new rescue and competition gear and the additions to the building and the maintenance of the Club.

The members of the Old Boys meet on the first Sunday of each month at 3pm to talk over old times and have a great catch-up. The fundraising is carried out by a few on Friday at the Greenhouse to support the Club.
