Surf Life Clubs across Wakehurst can now apply for funding for infrastructure improvements as part of the $4 million Statewide boost to surf club facilities funding.
Surf Life Saving Clubs across NSW are set to benefit from record funding from this year’s budget which will improve facilities which help save the lives of locals, visitors and tourists.
Surf lifesaving clubs are home base for our tens of thousands of volunteer lifesavers patrolling our beaches, allowing all age groups to learn about and contribute to water safety.
Surf Clubs rely on the skill and passion of volunteer surf lifesavers to provide this service and this vital injection of funding will ensure lifesavers have the support they need to do their important work through improving the standard and quality of surf lifesaving clubs in NSW.
From nippers to senior patrollers, members of Surf Life Saving clubs provide an amazing service to the people of NSW.
In 2016/17 volunteer surf lifesavers performed almost 5,000 rescues, 126,000 preventative actions and 15,750 first aid treatments.
