The Mullumbimby Rotary Club and the Lions Club of Brunswick/Mullumbimby recently held a joint annual fund raising night for the Brunswick Nippers – and the result was overwhelming.

As a result of the night, Rotary president Sue Stirton was able to present Nippers president Matt O’Hehir, with a cheque for $2,800 to purchase additional training boards to enhance the skills of the junior lifesavers.

Brunswick Surf Life Saving Club committee members and parents were delighted with the outcome.

‘Support for young Junior Life Saving is important, as these children are the future of Surf Life Saving Australia,’ said spokesperson Helen Carpenter.
