Lifesavers of the Far South Coast named as finalists for NSW excellence awards

After being named as a finalist, The Far South Coast (FSC) Surf Life Saving Branch is in with a chance to keep its title as NSW branch of the year.

In a field of 177 finalists, a set of dedicated Far South Coast lifesavers and volunteers are in the running for a 2019 Surf Life Saving NSW Award of Excellence.

Seven clubs from Pambula to Batemans Bay make up the FSC Branch. Volunteers recently received awards at the branch presentation.

"While many of our members have previously received awards at a branch-level, it's a wonderful opportunity for us to acknowledge their achievements at a state-level in front of the wider lifesaving community," Surf Life Saving NSW membership manager Claire Bevis said.
