Thank you and congratulations

Well what a day. We are so humbled by the turnout today. A very quick head count at one stage yielded over 200, and there were many people that popped in for a visit during the day as well. There were 2 main goals of today: raising some additional funds to help us finish what Nick started by completing his album; and announcing the inaugural winner of the Grant. We still have to do a final count, but indications are that we have raised over $5,500. So thank you so much to all of those that came along today, and for parting with some of your hard earned money in order to get us closer to our target. We would also like to announce that Jed Appleton was the winner of the inaugural Nick Balcombe Foundation Grant. Please join us in congratulating Jed, and we look forward to working with him over the next 12...

The Launch

After many beers and coffees over the past 18 months or so, The Nick Balcombe Foundation officially launched at 3pm today. The drizzly conditions in Hobart were not enough to dampen the spirits of all those that attended. It was a satisfying and emotional ocassion, with many laughs and some tears. The event was held in The Yard at The Brunswick Hotel, where Nick frequently played his beautiful music. At the launch, we also officially opened applications for the 2015 Grant.
