The Arcadian Surf Lifesaving Club is planning to make a splash at this Saturday night’s North Queensland Toyota Cowboys’ home game against the Rabbitohs at 1300SMILES Stadium.
With the support of Steggles Charity Nest, the lifesaving club will use Community Corner to promote their activities and spread the word about swimming safety.
“We wanted to give fans visiting Saturday’s game the chance to learn more about the club and their water safety messages and services,” Cowboys community relations manager Fiona Pelling said.
“The water, and especially the ocean, is such an important part of life in North Queensland and Community Corner is a great way of raising community awareness of the issues our surf lifesavers face.”
Up to 30 Arcadian members will take over Community Corner with information, a display of rescue equipment, and for young fans, free face painting in blue and yellow zinc cream.
The free Community Corner space at North Queensland’s home games reflects the Cowboys’ and Steggles’ commitment to assist local volunteer-run charities and not-for-profit organisations to build awareness and support from the local community.
Twelve charities that operate within and benefit the North Queensland community are offered this opportunity throughout the 2014 season.
