Central Coast Council has presented a cheque for $116,000 to Surf Life Saving Central Coast (SLSCC) as part of their sponsorship partnership with us. This is in addition to $6,500 individual sponsorships to each of the 15 Surf Life Saving Clubs across the Coast. 

The $213,500 total financial contribution was the second instalment of the two-year sponsorship and will be used to purchase vital rescue equipment and support the promotion of important aquatic safety messaging across the region this summer season.

Council and SLSCC work tirelessly to ensure that locals and visitors to the Coast’s world-class beaches feel safe and supported by our high-quality lifesaving services available.

Last year, SLSCC and its 15 Surf Clubs delivered over 93,373 patrolling hours, completed 614 rescues and responded to over 46 support operational rescues and callouts and delivered seven community rip demonstrations – a huge effort by all involved.

Council is proud to be supporting SLSCC Volunteer Lifesavers and their invaluable contribution to community safety, and this funding will continue to keep these safety measures in place and help to continue to foster its growth. 

Rik Hart, Administrator
