Lifesaving equipment for Scarboro surf club thanks to Lotterywest

07 June 2018
The Scarboro Surf Life Saving Club will be fitted out with new furniture, equipment and information technology in support of its essential services and beach patrols, thanks to a $300,000 Lotterywest grant.

The grant will help complete the fit-out of the new $13.3 million Scarboro Surf Life Saving Club building, ensuring the club can continue to provide critical, volunteer-based lifesaving services.

Sport and Recreation and Volunteering Minister Mick Murray visited Scarboro Surf Life Saving Club today to deliver the grant ahead of the club's upcoming move into the new facility.

The new surf club building is part of the wider $100 million Scarborough foreshore revitalisation project, funded by the State Government and the City of Stirling.

Comments attributed to Sport and Recreation and Volunteering Minister Mick Murray:

"There is no greater example to demonstrate the value Lotterywest pours back into the WA community than its support for volunteer lifesaving.

"Scarboro volunteer surf lifesavers have saved countless lives in the 90 years they have served the community, and it is pleasing to deliver funding to ensure this essential, lifesaving service is supported.

"This iconic club is part of Australia's unique surf lifesaving volunteer culture, and the State Government is proud to continue to support its vital work."
