Mayoral Minute No. MM9/17


Subject:              Request for financial and in-kind support for Kooloora Community Centre and Southend Boardriders

Folder No:                F2017/07396

Author:                     The  Mayor, Cr Noel D'Souza      




Council has received requests from two local community organisations, Kooloora Community Centre and Southend Boardriders, for financial assistance to enable them to hold community events described below.




Southend Boardriders’ monthly surfing competition


Southend Boardriders is a non-profit membership based organisation aimed at promoting and developing the surfing skills of local residents of all ages and abilities.  In order to develop local surfing skills and talent, the organisation holds monthly surfing competitions on Maroubra Beach.  These events reflect the strong beach culture of our beautiful coast.  Surfing as a sport or recreational pursuit is a major part of Maroubra Beach’s local identity and heritage and it is my belief that this organisation’s competitions should be supported because they help create the City’s vibrant beach communities.


The organisation has requested in-kind assistance totaling $3,724 to hold seven surfing competitions.  


Kooloora Multicultural Lunch and Volunteers Awards Presentation


The Kooloora Community Centre in Malabar provides a range of services to help create safer, healthier and connected neighbourhoods.  Volunteers help the Centre deliver many of its programs and services, such as weekly playgroups, men’s shed programs, community gardening and the delivery of affordable fresh food program, Vegged-out.  These services are assisted by local volunteers who come from diverse backgrounds and the Centre proposes to hold an event in May to celebrate its local diversity and acknowledge the contributions of its volunteers.


The Multicultural Lunch and Volunteers Awards Presentation is a worthy event that Randwick City Council should support by making a cash donation of $1,450.  


Financial impact statement


The financial impact to Council will be $3,724 by way of in-kind contribution to the Southend Boardriders and $1,450 in the form of a cash donation to the Kooloora Community Centre, a total amount of $5,174.00.



I strongly believe Randwick City Council should provide in-kind support to the Southend Boardriders to hold their monthly competition because such activities help create our lively local beach culture.


Provision of a cash contribution towards a thank you lunch and award presentation event to acknowledge the Kooloora Community Centre’s team of tireless volunteers is an event that also deserves Council’s support.






a)  Council makes an in-kind contribution of $3,724.00 to Southend Boardriders to use Maroubra Beach for their monthly surfing contents between April and October 2017;


b)  Council makes a cash donation of $1,450.00 to the Kooloora Community Centre to help them hold a Multicultural Lunch and Volunteers Awards Presentation;


c)  The costs for the abovementioned amounts shall be identified from the 2016/17 Contingency Funds; and


d)  Both event organisers undertake to appropriately and prominently acknowledge and promote Council’s contribution prior to and during the activities/events

·     Advertising in the Southern Courier (4 April 2017)

·     Promotion in Council’s weekly Randwick eNews sent to 20,000 subscribers (5 April 2017)
