Community Benefit Arrangements
Community Benefit Arrangements resulting in on-going fundraising
Sawtell SLSC is fortunate that there are groups prepared to use the services of the Club in various ways and are prepared to give a donation for the services provided.
For almost 20 years, Manly Nippers have held a spring training camp at Sawtell. The club appreciate the warm welcome that Sawtell SLSC extends to our families. Manly LSC thanks Sawtell SLSC and the local community for allowing us to train in this beautiful environment.
THE ARMIDALE SCHOOL (TAS)
TAS is a co-educational independent boarding and day school on the New England tablelands who has for many years offered students the opportunity to attain their Surf Bronze Medallion through a partnership with Sawtell Surf Life Saving Club. TAS students spend several days through the year at Sawtell SLSC learning surf swimming and rescue techniques, culminating in an intensive week of training and assessment in November. TAS is grateful for the passion Sawtell SLSC instructors share with our students, for the hospitality in having us to stay, and is proud to reciprocate with practical assistance as a way of saying ‘thank you’.
Village Sports organises sporting events for all ages and abilities whilst raising money for local charities. Sawtell SLSC willingly assists by way of providing water safety and in return receives a donation.
Many thanks to these organisations who consider Sawtell SLSC a reliable provider of services and in return are prepared to make a donation.
Sawtell SLSC is also fortunate that there are many local businesses prepared to assist our Club in other ways. This support is greatly appreciated and we encourage our members to actively support them.
Amart Sports offer an amazingly generous benefit when our members (or anyone in the community) sign up for their kickbacks scheme. The Club accumulates a tally of credit points that converts to cash that the Club can redeem in kind in the store – which means we can get free equipment, or purchase big ticket items such as go pros, fit bitz etc for raffling. The Club has already redeemed thousands of dollars of value from this scheme – buying boards, game equipment and items for raffling. Signing up is beneficial to members as well. It gives access to our diverse Member Offers, and our range of in-store services including the lifetime mechanical tuning of our bicycles! The 30 seconds of your time taken to sign up benefits everyone. Link to Amart Coffs Harbour
