It was a first-up success for fundraising by martial arts’ fans on Good Friday, with youngsters (left) and older coaches and participants (right) photographed at ClubMulwala.

All forms of Martial Arts appeared at ClubMulwala’s temporary ‘Festival Hall’ on Good Friday in raising $2,014 for The Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

It was a delighted Nick Davis from Murray River Boxing Gym. “It was unreal the amount raised,” he told the Yarrawonga Chronicle.
“Everyone got behind it. We had 40 sparring and 120 people there.”
Ages of people who stepped into ClubMulwala’s ‘Festival Hall’ - the club’s Auditorium - ranged from six-years-of-age to mid 50s.
Appropriate matches were organised for the participants who travelled from such places as Echuca, Wangaratta and Melbourne, as well as local fighters.
“We very much appreciate ClubMulwala management for making the auditorium available to us. It’s a great ‘House of Stoush’,” Nick said.
“Everyone had a good time and there was a jumping castle for the kids inside the auditorium. The Easter Bunny was there and our idea was to cater for the whole family, to raise money for such a good cause.”
The amount of $2,014 was an excellent result.
