What is the Carrington Sun Fundy campaign?
Carrington Bowling Club is one of the last surviving bowlos in Newcastle. And we want to help this local treasure stick around a long time. But the club's energy bills are up to $4000 a month. So Climate Action Newcastle have teamed up with CBC to raise the funds needed to put a full bank of solar panels on the bowling club roof. CBC will save money (>$100k in 4 years!) while it generates more clean energy. Win win!
Check out the video featuring Jaci & Su on the Carrington Sun Fundy
crowdfunding site. Please share the campaign with your contacts and donate as generously as you can.
For the whole weekend 1 - 3 December local bands are donating their talents to put on the Carrington Sun Fundy Gig at the Carrington Bowling Club. Friday is rock night, Saturday party bands outdoors, and Sunday is Irish, roots and blues. Check out the great lineup of local talent here and come along for some or all of the weekend.
Tickets can be purchased at the same Sun Fundy campaign site.
Call out for CAN volunteers Saturday 2 December
Many hands make light work. We're all volunteers running this event, so if you would like to chip in to help make it great, please contact us at
to go on a roster for any one of the easy-but-essential jobs. It'll be great to have you along.
