After losing a significant amount funding at the start of this year, CCP faced major limitations in what it was able to achieve for Chippendale in 2017.

We are overwhelmed by the support received and so grateful for all who joined us on the night, donated prizes, bought raffle tickets, donated artwork and provided sponsorship.
