Lions Clubs and the Australian Lions Foundation support Beach Patrol vehicles.
The Australian Lions Foundation and the Lions Clubs of Victor Harbour and Port Elliot get summer off to a good start at Port Elliott with the help of a new beach patrol and support vehicle, thanks to the assistance of the Lions Club of Victor harbor and Port Elliott and the Australian Lions Foundation.
The Club has a long-standing relationship with the Surf Life Saving Club – the Lions and the Surf Club have jointly run “Surf Lions Summer Barbecues” for over 30 years.
Proceeds from various Club fund-raising projects plus a $4,000 Grant from the Foundation assisted the change-over of the patrol vehicle to a larger unit.
The new unit better enables the patrolling surf life savers to assist more quickly, and has a full range of first aid and resuscitation equipment, including Defribrillator and Oxy-Viva equipment.
Surf Club President, Rod Ellis, thanked Lions for their special help towards the equipment and for their support of the volunteer Surf Life Savers over many years.
