Sun Shines on North Curl Curl Surf Life Saving Club after NSW Government Grant
Local Surf Life Saving Clubs will be better equipped to protect people at the beach following the awarding of grants in the NSW Government’s 2020/21 Surf Club Facility Program.
North Curl Curl Surf Life Saving Club on the Northern Beaches will receive $31,363.00 under the program for the installation of Solar Panels on the building.
Member for Manly, James Griffin congratulated North Curl Curl Surf Lifesaving club.
Northern Beaches surf lifesavers play a vital role patrolling our beaches and keeping us safe in the water,” Mr Griffin said.
“These volunteers are on the beaches every weekend in good weather or bad, protecting residents and visitors.
“This funding is crucial to our local clubs to ensure they continue to keep the community safe at the beach.”
Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said Surf Life Saving Clubs were truly deserving of the NSW Government’s support.
“Surf Life Saving Clubs provide a vital service, protecting people in the water and supporting a healthy lifestyle for members”, Mrs Ward said.
“Despite the challenges of the last 12 months, our Surf Life Saving volunteers have never wavered in their commitment to ensuring people were safe at our beaches.
“I congratulate the successful applicants in this year’s program.”
President of Surf Life Saving NSW George Shales OAM said ensuring rescue facilities across NSW remained safe, accessible and secure was a top priority.
“Surf Life Saving Clubs are often the hub of their communities and our volunteer lifesavers should have access to fit-for-purpose facilities so they can focus on saving lives. This allows significant upgrades to surf club facilities to improve access for our 75,000 members,” Mr Shales said.
“With 129 clubs across the State, volunteer surf lifesavers performed 2,500 rescues, 141,000 preventative actions and 7,000 first aid treatments last year.”
