Raelene Donnell was named Club Official of the Year.

A note from one of our young Warriors

Eliza’s Greatest Shave – Thankyou

Hi everyone,

As many of you know, I recently I shaved my hair off as part of the World’s Greatest Shave to raise money for Leukemia. I would like to thank everyone from the Semaphore Surf Lifesaving Club who generously donated to this cause and supported me – your encouragement was amazing. My original goal was to raise $400, but I ended up raising $2,787.07. Over $400 of this was raised in my donation buckets at the club and I know many people also donated through my webpage. I also owe a special thankyou to Ella and Teags, who shaved my hair, and Steph Breden who assisted with my fundraising through the club.

Thanks again to everyone.

Eliza 😊😊😊

****We are super proud of you Eliza, a wonderful example of the selfless, empowered and community driven young members our Club has. Well done to you!***
