SSMRF and Caringbah Rotary fed a delicious BBQ lunch to a group of hungry Seniors after their surf safety school in the surf club and in the ocean.
To kick off Seniors Week 2023, Sutherland Shire Council lifeguards and members of the Cronulla Surfing Academy explained the basics of how to stay safe in the surf to 20 local Seniors at Wanda Beach, Cronulla.
SSMRF Chief Executive Officer Pam Brown and SSMRF Head of Fundraising, Marketing & Events Kathryn Lord were today assisted by volunteers from Caringbah Rotary, who won the Sutherland Shire Community Group of the Year in the recent Sutherland Shire Council Australia Day Awards.
SSMRF CEO Pam Brown, who is also the Secretary of Caringbah Rotary, said “improving the health and wellbeing of people in our community is at the heart of the St George & Sutherland Shire Medical Research Foundation and Caringbah Rotary, so when presented the opportunity to support this excellent initiative we jumped at the chance. The Council lifeguards do such a great job on our Bate Bay beaches. The Seniors got so much out of the free event and so did we.”
