Surf Life Saving NSW is proud to announce that the organisation has welcomed two new members to the family, with Ingenia Holiday Parks and Oakberry Acai coming on board as Official Partners.

Additionally, Oakberry Acai has taken up the opportunity to become the Naming Rights Partner for the NSW Country Championships and a Major Sponsor of the NSW Surf Life Saving Championships for the next three years.

One of Australia’s leading brand of acai, Oakberry Acai has bars in beach locations in NSW, Queensland and Western Australia. Acai is well known across café’s in Australia as a rich superfood packed with vitamins and antioxidants. Oakberry Açaí’s product is uniquely layered with other nutritious superfoods, including fruits, nuts, butters, granolas and cereals, and presented in the exclusive Oakberry cups, creating a brilliant, delicious and refreshing offering.

“Oakberry is very excited to be partnered with Surf Life Saving NSW, and to be a major sponsor of the Country and State Championships for the next three years,” CEO, Renan Pinto said.

“We have long admired SLSNSW, so are thrilled to be able to get involved with such an inspiring and unique organisation, doing such great and irreplaceable work in the community.

“Oakberry embraces an outdoors and active lifestyle, which underscores our love for the ocean and respect for surf lifesaving.”

Also joining the family is Ingenia Holiday Parks, offering a variety of caravan, camping and cabin accommodation throughout coastal and inland NSW, Victoria and Queensland – ideal for a short break, stop over or holiday. Their parks are places to relax and have fun in a welcoming environment, where children and families are catered for in a safe and social community.

The partnership with Ingenia Holiday Parks includes Surf Safety sessions for guests at their parks – especially kids! Not only that – it includes backing up their commitment to keeping guests safe, with the inclusion of First Aid training opportunities for their staff too.

“We see great synergy in our partnership with Surf Life Saving NSW,” Ingenia Holiday Parks’ General Manager – Tourism, Matthew Young said.

“With so many of our locations coastal, surf safety is paramount at Ingenia Holiday Parks. Kicking off our surf safety sessions in November has already shown how valuable and engaging the message is, especially for the children, and we are excited to continue to educate our guests on surf safety.”

Ingenia is also committed to the future of surf lifesaving in NSW and will be the Naming Rights Partner for the Junior Lifesaver of the Year program, supporting the development of our lifesavers of tomorrow, to ensure the safety of the community well into the future.

You will also see Ingenia at the State Championships as a Supporting Sponsor.

“Young families love our parks so partnering with SLSNSW for the State Championships and Junior Lifesaver of the Year awards keeps us connected to our guests in a shared love of an outdoor active lifestyle,” Matthew continued.

“We fully support the development of junior lifesavers and will be cheering them on throughout 2022 and beyond.”

“These partnerships make a lot of sense for us and we see great brand alignment with them,” added Surf Life Saving NSW CEO, Steve Pearce.

“Oakberry Acai’s association with our major surf sports events is a perfect match for that healthy, active lifestyle that we promote within the membership.

“The commitment that Ingenia is making to the safety of their holiday park guests is commendable and it’s what we want for every holiday-maker – to have a great holiday but to get home safely – so it’s great that we can team up together to do that.

“We are delighted to have both partners onboard and look forward to working together to support our members and the broader community.”
