The team at Ocean Shores Tavern have raised $500 for the Brunswick Surf Lifesaving Club’s Nippers program. 

The Tavern’s owner Kim Dowling says the pub is undergoing extensive renovations, including a massive upgrade to their children’s play area.

‘To make way for this exciting new play space, the team raffled off their existing equipment, a fabulous cubby house and mud kitchen from Castle & Cubby. 

‘When seeking a local charity to raise funds for in preparation for our new kids play area, we couldn’t go past the Nippers!’, says Kim.

She, and her brother Adam Berger are clubbies from way back.

Nippers Club President Warren Burgess said the donation will be used to purchase a Junior Search and Rescue Kit.

Warren says, ‘Donations from community organisations are vital to ensure we can afford the necessary rescue equipment, boards and training gear to run Nippers, so a big thank you to the Ocean Shores Tavern for supporting your local surf lifesaving club’.
