Why sponsor the Tathra Surf Life Saving Club?

Surf clubs are a valuable community asset

The Tathra SLSC is a charity and relies on our members and community partners to help us fund our activities.

Surf Life Saving (SLS) is an activity that is unique in the eyes of the Australian public. In 2007 SLS Australia celebrated its centenary. In 2010, Tathra SLS club commemorated its 100 years of saving lives, education and involvement in the community.

As a community cause, SLS, embodies the values of volunteer organisations all over Australia including trustworthiness, honesty, honour, friendliness, efficiency, responsiveness, dedication, reliability and selflessness.

SLS aims to be an organisation that saves lives and which welcomes and educates anyone who wants to enjoy Australia’s beaches safely and respects the rights of others to do so without discrimination.

Sponsorship of Tathra SLS club provides a platform to its 300 local members, the Tathra and NSW south coast community. You are helping us to take our place amongst the 129 clubs and 11 branches on the South Coast and come together with other SLS clubs further across New South Wales and Australia.

Costs of running a surf club: Where does the money go?

Money that is received from sponsors and supporters or through fund-raising goes to provide the equipment our Club needs to provide effective patrols and train the next generation of life savers.

Due to harsh operating conditions of sun, sand and salt water, the equipment has a limited life-span, for example an IRB has about five years and rescue boards three to four years.

Below is a our basic equipment list with prices:

IRB (Inflatable Rescue Boat)Essential piece of equipment for quick response, mass rescues, immediate treatment of patient. $17,000
All terrain vehicle Needed to provide a quick response to incidents and for mobile surveillance patrols on the 4 kilometres of beach to the north of the Club House. Also needed to get other equipment down to water.$16,000

DefibrillatorTo provide Australian best practice first aid in case of a cardiac arrest. $3,000
