Fundraising

Point Lookout Surf Life Saving Club Inc is a non-profit organisation, and we rely heavily on fundraising, government assistance and donations from the public and corporate sector to ensure that we continue to maintain and improve our Life Saving Services.

As we are one of the only Surf Lifesaving Clubs in Australia patrolling two beaches on North Stradbroke Island, we require extensive gear and equipment to provide a high-quality service to the bathing public.

Last season we performed a total of 31 rescues, 20,138 preventative actions and 598 first aid cases alone.

We do not rely on the income provided by bistros and poker machines (neither of these are at our club), therefore fundraising activities such as raffles, collection days etc are needed to raise much needed funds.

The funds enable us to continue providing members with the most up to date training and rescue equipment, as well as cover the ongoing costs associated with the maintenance of our Clubhouse and facilities.

While most fundraising events require some participation from members, they can also be a fun way to interact with mates, young and old.

Monies raised are used to pay for the purchase and maintenance of rescue gear and club facilities. Members only pay for their membership and meal costs if they are staying at the clubhouse for the weekend.

All members are required to help out in the essential area of fundraising.

Point Lookout Surf Life Saving Club Inc. is a non-profit organisation,
and we rely heavily on fundraising, government

we require extensive gear and equipment to provide a
high quality service to the bathing public. Last season we saw a massive increase on bather numbers and performed a total of 20 Rescues , 11855 Preventative Actions and 1025 First Aid Cases between Main and Cylinder Beaches.

We do not rely on the income provided by Bistros and Poker
Machines (neither of these are at our club), therefore fundraising

to continue providing members with the most up to date
training and rescue equipment, as well as cover the ongoing
costs associated with the maintenance of our Clubhouse
and facilities.

As part of preparations for the upcoming season, the fundraising committee have been planning their events and initiatives to support the running of the club. First off the ranks is our highly sort after, 2023 Club Calendar Fundraiser!
 
We are again asking our members to share their favourite shots from around the island to be considered for inclusion in the newest edition of the calendar. Calendars will be sold across various locations and photographers credited on their shot.
 
We are looking for a variety of shots - landscape / aerial / underwater, at a variety of locations on the island.
