The Nullarbor Muster Club needs $50,000 for the construction of a new toilet and shower block for this year’s muster.
Club spokeswoman Barbara Hogg said it had become obvious during the past few years the current facilities needed upgrading due to the increasing number of people attending the muster.
However, club president Greg Campbell said the club might not be able to afford to finish the facilities completely without assistance before this year’s muster.
The annual event, from April 26-28, celebrates its 30th birthday this year and about 1000 people are expected to attend.
Building is already under way and the facilities are expected to be ready by this year’s muster, but it means the club’s finances and sponsorship will be severely taxed.
The construction costs total $100,000 – the club is prepared to put up half of this but wants politicians and the Goldfields-Esperance Development Commission to match its contribution.
