September 2013 Recipients
Waipu Cove Surf Live Saving Club received more than $6,000 to purchase a new motor for its inflatable rescue boat (IRB). The current IRB motor was due for renewal, as it had become a risk during emergency situations.
Waipu Surf Life Saving Club is required to provide a safe and reliable service to the community during the summer months. Once a motor becomes old or undergoes repairs, it poses a risk during emergency situations. The equipment needs to be in perfect condition to ensure the club’s rescues do not turn bad.
