Taking the plunge for funds

Rev Wayne McHugh in training with coach Todd
REV WAYNE McHugh is leading a band of swimmers into the Proserpine Pool to raise funds towards two church building projects this April.

Plans for the St James Uniting Church are to extend the building to double its seating capacity and provide suitable office space.

St Martin’s Church in Cannonvale is a shared venture. The property is owned by the Lutherans. The building was built by the Roman Catholics, and it is shared by those churches as well as the Anglicans and the Uniting Church.

The building desperately needs cooling and this fund raising event hopes to help that happen.

Swimmers will swim varying distances, but Mr McHugh is training hard. He has promised to do 60 laps, the equivalent of 3km.

The event has drawn a generous response from the outset, with the venue, supervision and the BBQ facilities being provided by the pool managers.
