Venus Bay Surf Life Saving Club is run completely by volunteers. From patrol to first aid to committee, all members give up their time freely to provide a safe swimming environment for the community. Without generous donations the club would not be able to patrol beach #1 and conduct the wide range of activities and opportunities that we offer our community.
The Venus Bay Surf Life Saving Club is a registered charity and as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) by the Australian Taxation Office we can issue receipts for any donation of $2 or more.
