Club Fundraiser for Milly Shelton (20th February 2020)
Alexandra Headland SLSC’s core business is maintaining a voluntary lifesaving vigil over the bathing public at this beach. Yet to do this effectively we must also acknowledge and support the contributions of our members who together undertake this common cause.
Milly’s fundraiser demonstrated the enormous depth of care and support members of this Club have for a dedicated patrolling member and her family when in need.
Emma and Milly have thanked you all for contributing towards over $6,500 raised over a few weeks and on this night and now I thank each contributor for making this such a heart-felt and successful event.
The call to support was heard and 150 thoughtful supporters for Milly turned out to be treated generously by the boys from ‘TILT’ and a long list of raffle donations prizes.
Appreciations must go to Ashley Robinson our CEO for fitting this occasion into a hectic Bluff Bar agenda and getting behind yet another member’s idea, the Supporters Staff for their courteous attention and service, Club Administrators Janelle Ryan and Tiarrn Raymond who promoted, collated and ticketed before and during, Janelle Pallister for initiating the Club’s response to a member’s family in need and all of course all those who donated directly or via raffle prizes.
Truly, this Club is much more than a public lifesaving organisation, it’s an empathetic collection of volunteers and an honour and pleasure to be part of because of the wonderfully community minded people involved. Well done Alex!!!!!
