President of the Bega Bowlo Fishing Club Barry Blacka said that at a recent meeting, the club resolved to support the Tathra/Reedy Swamp bushfire recovery by donating $500 to the Tathra Mountain Bike Club. The MTB club came to mind as an ideal recipient because we wanted to give financial support to a volunteer, community organisation that would help Tathra’s tourism economy, especially during winter. Andy Johnson from the MTB club was on hand at Club Bega to receive the cheque.
