THE COOLUM Lions has always greatly appreciated the Local Surf Club’s Nipper program that provides our young people with essential skills to succeed in life and reach their full potential.  

Nippers is a water safety skills and education program that introduces children aged 5 to 14 years to lifesaving. Nipper Education Programs are delivered at Life Saving Clubs across Australia.  

To help with the local Nipper program, Lion Doug Alford from Coolum Lions presented cheques of $2,000 to Marcoola Surf Club and $2,000 to Mudjimba Surf Club. 

“One can only stand in awe when witnessing the dedication and commitment of the Nipper management and training team,” Doug said.  

“It is an absolute pleasure and boost to the soul to witness the great work of volunteers (like those at Nippers) throughout Australia who inspire us all.  If you would like to help, then the local Surf Clubs are always looking for volunteers.” 

Coolum Lions has been supporting the local community for over 40 years and if you are keen to help your community, call Doug on 0413 019078- help when it suits, no set commitment.
