The Surf Life Saving National Awards of Excellence programme recognises the contribution of our amazing members from the grass roots of Surf Life Saving during the 2019/2020 season. Congratulations to all of our winners and award recipients.
We are immensely grateful for bp’s ongoing support and their talented team who work alongside us – their involvement over 52 years has been hugely beneficial to both organisations. Our partnership with bp continues to be the longest unbroken commercial partnership in New Zealand, and we are both incredibly proud <strong>of</strong> this. bp committed to repeating the highly popular “Every Litre Counts” campaign for a third season raising awareness and an additional $231,219 in critical funds for <strong>SLSNZ</strong>. The 2019 Vote the Boat recipient <strong>of</strong> a fully kitted Inflatable Rescue Boat was Kaka Point SLSC in the South Island, who have made a number <strong>of</strong> rescues with their new IRB. bp Leaders for Life – our leadership development programme – continues to go from strength to strength providing our members with a fantastic opportunity for personal development and to make a valued contribution to the growth <strong>of</strong> surf lifesaving in New Zealand. Our clubs once again benefited at the start <strong>of</strong> the season with a $500 bp gift card to help with running costs.
