Why we need your help…

In addition to fund raising for the new building, our volunteers must raise around $40,000 per annum to provide our patrols on the beach. There is no government funding for this service.  

All these funds are raised by our members or from our generous sponsors and supporters.   

Any form of support (including “in Kind” ) is greatly appreciated
