Surf Life Saving Far North Coast Branch Inc has announced Tursa Employment & Training sponsorship of $10,000 for a new branch fund, intended to provide funding for surf clubs from Yamba to the New South Wales-Queensland border.

‘Clubs will be able to apply for assistance for funding for essential equipment, events or specific training’, said Wilson Cregan President of Surf Life Saving Far North Coast Branch Inc. ‘Funding will be on a 50/50 basis.’

Mr Cregan said that TURSA had been involved with Surf Life Saving on the NSW Far North Coast for over eight years and this new sponsorship ($10,000) will assist with building the branch’s new funding initiative and hopefully by their example encourage other business sponsors to come on board as well.’
