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.
The dedicated TSB team committed to providing Surf Life Saving Clubs with rescue gear this year through the provision <strong>of</strong> their annual TSB Grants, worth $100,000. From rescue tubes and rescue boards to hand-held radios and all-terrain vehicles, their support was felt directly at the grassroots level. In addition, they invested in the replacement <strong>of</strong> the battered flag stand covers for all our clubs across Aotearoa. Patrol flags are not only iconic but also essential lifesaving equipment that designates the safest place to swim on a lifeguarded beach. TSB also support <strong>SLSNZ</strong>’s Beach Education programme that teaches thousands <strong>of</strong> primary and intermediate kiwi kids practical beach and water skills in a real beach setting. Prevention is better than cure and the best way to save lives at the beach and reduce our alarming fatal drowning toll is to teach people how to stay out <strong>of</strong> danger. We know this programme saves lives and TSB’s support is critical.
