Brunswick SLSC took delivery of a new Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB) to replace one of its three ageing boats. Built by Thundercat in the Gold Coast and painted by Signxtreme, it displays the logo of the donor.

Bruns SLSC was the recipient of a Qantas Sidebyside grants program (which funds eligible volunteer organisations that are actively supported by a Qantas employee). Qantas has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to a diverse range of volunteer programs over the years.

Grass roots

In accepting the IRB, club president Craig Reid said, ‘Regional grass root community organisations like Brunswick SLSC are not normally in receipt of National Corporate Charity support. Qantas’s generous donation is a great benefit to our small community’.

Nicknamed Pickle Fork, the IRB will be a key asset in saving lives along the extensive patrol area that Bruns’ SLSC is responsible for.
