PLAYGROUND GROWING: John Harper, Tim Oberg, Kerri Gill, Lisa Christofersen, Jan Clifford, Karen Collins and Scott Hardy are looking forward to bringing the ‘great big fort’ to Logan’s Adventure Playground.

AFTER just nine weeks of fundraising the Play and Shine Project Group has raised more than a quarter of the funds needed for a new piece of equipment at Logan's Adventure Playground.

Through fundraising events such as a Bowen Cup event and sponsored picket sales, Play and Shine has generated more than $25,000 since they started fundraising on October 3.

Their goal is to have the Tallis fort installed at the Cannonvale site by March 2016, adding to the existing flying fox and Saturn carousel.

Play and Shine Project Group's Lisa Christofersen ambitiously hopes to have the entire playground finished by December 31, 2016 - a sentimental date for all involved as it also marks Logan's birthday.

To reach that goal, Play and Shine Project Group is busily planning their next fundraising event - a gala night expected to rival the very best of nights' out.

The event will be held on February 6, with guest speaker Coffee Club director John Lazarou expected to attend.

"It won't be your standard fundraising dinner," Ms Christofersen said.

"It will be something really special, so stay tuned."

While Play and Shine Project Group is keeping the majority of details about the event close to their chest, Ms Christofersen said the night would carry the theme of love.

Play and Shine Project Group are still selling family pickets ($99) and business posts ($300) to raise funds for Logan's Adventure Playground.
