Woolgoolga Junior Nippers is run by volunteers and parents. They rely on fundraising to be able to supply the club with boards, flags and equipment.
They need to purchase a new trailer to transport the boards used at training and competitions.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced funding to assist with this.
“Nippers provides a safe and friendly environment to teach children surf safety and surf lifesaving skills,” Mr Hogan said.
“I am pleased to announce $5,000 for the club to purchase a new board trailer.”
“Our local Nippers train for swimming, boards, beach sprint, beach flags and junior ironman and ironwoman.”
“We have had quite a few successful children represent our area at Branch, Country and State levels.”
“This new board trailer will allow the club to maintain the supply of boards required at competitions.”
