Rotary Club of Ocean Grove collected a gold coin donation from its January market and donated it straight to Ocean Grove CFA.
The cheque for $956.45 was presented to the CFA by Rotary’s president Judy Greer, whose grandsons, Lincoln and Fraser, also tagged along with her.
The money will be used to upgrade the CFA support vehicle, which is used for ground observation during fires, ferries volunteers to fire calls, does Santa runs at Christmas time and transports firefighters to kinders and school for talks.
CFA operations officer Ian Beswicke said the support from Rotary was long-standing.
“Without support from the community and from organisations such as Rotary, which we’ve had a long and happy association with, CFA would never be able to upgrade its services,” he said.
Mr Beswicke said public donations were always welcome.
