Esperance Goldfields Surf Lifesaving Club

The Esperance Goldfield’s Surf Lifesaving Club has purchased two loud hailers, two data projectors and a defibrillation and Oxy-Viva pack, with a $2,100 grant from Domino’s Give for Good.  

The new equipment will help to convey safety warnings, support lifesaver education and help save lives at Twilight Beach.

Esperance Goldfields Surf Lifesaving Club President Tracey Lewis said they were thrilled to receive the funds from the Domino’s Give for Good small grants program with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR).

“The provision of two loud hailers and a defibrillation and Oxy-Viva pack has increased our ability to respond to emergency situations and improve safety,” Ms Lewis said.

“The data projectors allow us to hold information seminars for surfers and training for our volunteer lifeguards.”

Domino’s Director of Giving John Harney said the Esperance Goldfields Surf Lifesaving Club was the perfect recipient for the Give for Good small grants program.

“At Domino’s, we are keen to support organisations that assist communities through disaster relief and preparedness,” John said.

“We hope that by supporting this organisation, we are helping to improve the club’s ability to respond to emergencies with improved equipment and deliver important education seminars to volunteer lifeguards.”

With more than 680 Domino’s stores located across Australia, Domino’s is committed to working with its local communities in the areas of education and youth initiatives; leadership and entrepreneurship; disaster relief and preparedness; and food and sustainability. 

“We work closely with FRRR through the grants initiative to help build resilient and adaptive rural, regional and remove communities. Our Give for Good small grants program is an annual program assisting with community-led projects that respond to these impact areas.”

Domino’s Give for Good small grants program launched in 2016 through the FRRR with 20 not-for-profit organisations and community groups sharing in just under $90,000.
