Boost for skate park bid

By Sally Gordon

Yamba's new Eagle Boys pizza store opened its doors to hundreds of hungry teens eager to soak up the cheap deals and great pizzas.

Now, the business is giving back to the community's youth.

The Yamba Fair Shopping pizza parlour on Friday donated $200 to the Yamba Skate Park Committee.

The cheque was presented outside the busy store to Clarence Valley Council candidate and skate park committee member Simon Williams.

Owner-manager Colleen Hinds, who runs the Yamba and Grafton Eagle Boys store with her husband Mark, said she was a firm supporter of the community's youth.

She said the store intended to help the skate park committee with fundraising again further down the track.

Around 25 of the town's youngsters are employed at the Yamba pizza outlet.

Mr Williams, who has been on the skate park committee for about two years, was hopeful that other small businesses in Yamba would follow Eagle Boys' generosity.
