New patrol shelter ready for summer
PATROL members at Swanbourne Nedlands Surf Life Saving Club will be able to continue keeping beachgoers safe next summer, thanks to a donation from The Shorehouse.
The club recently purchased a large patrol shelter after the restaurant donated $2 to the club from every big breakfast ordered.
Swanbourne Nedlands SLSC president Daniel Juengling said the shelter would allow lifesavers to have an active presence on the beach between the red and yellow flags.
“The shelter cost $4750 and the majority of that money was donated by The Shorehouse,” he said.
“As a volunteer organisation, the club depends on donations and fundraising to help with the day-to-day expenses associated with patrolling and keeping our beaches safe.
The Shorehouse owner George Kailis said the restaurant was proud to be involved with the club.
“It’s great to support the surf club, as they are very important to the community,” he said.
