National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week kicks-off from Monday 11 May, and Surf Life Saving NSW would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to those who selflessly volunteer their time to protect the community.

The theme for 2015 is Give Happy, Live Happy and it is a theme that the Surf Life Saving family actively tries to embrace. Apart from their involvement within lifesaving, many of our members also donate their time to other worthy causes.

In the 2014/15 season our volunteer surf lifesavers donated over 500,000 hours of their time to patrol beaches across the state, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of hours of behind the scenes work that are essential for the smooth running of our surf clubs.
