INVERLOCH SURF LIFE SAVING CLUB WIN BIG IN AMPOL’S NATIONAL IRB HULL GIVEAWAY
Inverloch SLSC is the proud winner of an Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB) hull powered by Ampol in partnership with Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA).
Over 640 entries were received across April and May, as Australia’s Surf Life Saving Clubs vied to win one of two brand-new IRB hulls to help deliver essential services and protect their communities.
SLSA CEO Adam Weir said that the number of entries highlighted the importance and need for this vital equipment with the membership actively engaged in the opportunity to win a rescue craft.
“Congratulations to Inverloch SLSC and thank you to Ampol for continuing to help us power local Surf Life Saving Clubs and volunteers in supporting our communities,” Weir said.
“IRBs are a critically important resource for our frontline surf rescue capabilities that allow our people to respond and act efficiently and effectively, when protecting our coastline.
“All 315 Surf Life Saving Clubs around Australia would benefit from having this equipment, so I am not surprised by the number of entries. Thank you to every person who submitted an application on behalf of their club, and again to Ampol for providing this valuable equipment.”
Ampol Chief Brand Officer, Jenny O’Regan, said: “We are proud to see our partnership with Surf Life Saving Australia break new ground with the delivery of these IRBs.
“Safety and wellbeing are key focus areas of our community investment strategy, and I am pleased that this new infrastructure will make an important difference for the Inverloch community as we head toward the next beach patrol season.”
A second IRB was awarded to Mudjimba Surf Life Saving Club in Queensland.
