Umina SLSC’s member and NSW Young Lifesaver of the Year, Kai Darwin, was among 6 lifesavers invited to NSW parliament house last week as part of NSW Surf Lifesaving’s Volunteer Recognition Day.

Lifesavers from across NSW were welcomed by State MP’s as part of a celebration of the state’s 75,000 volunteer surf lifesavers.

The day was hosted by the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, David Elliott and was an opportunity for state politicians for thank Surf Life Saving volunteers personally for the work they do protecting lives along our coastline.

“It’s a privilege to be asked to attend this event and represent the thousands of volunter lifesavers” said Kai. “Our volunteers do an amazing job keeping people safe at the beach and its good to have that recognition from our state government.”

Umina SLSC is delighted to have one of our members representing the club and SLSNSW in this way.
