Community spirit thrives
September 23 2021
Kollosche is proud to announce the partnership with Kurrawa Surf Life Saving Club as a major sponsor to support the club and nippers program for the 2021/22 and 2022/23 seasons.
Surf Life Saving Australia’s (SLSA) primary mission is to save lives and build better, healthier communities. But, beyond the essential work of saving lives, surf clubs represent the true spirit of Australia.
Whether it’s providing a meeting place like a bar or cafe for social gatherings, beachside facilities such as showers or important advice on the conditions and patrolled areas, surf clubs have long been a focal hub for the local community.
Our work in the community and supporting local services and organisations remains at the heart of the Kollosche team which now consists of 83 employees.
“Gold Coast beaches are such a valuable asset for every Gold Coast resident, and we are so fortunate to live where we do,” says Michael Kollosche, Managing Director of Kollosche.
“This partnership ensures we are able to further support the work of the volunteers who keep our beaches and our families safe.”
Surf Life Saving is an Australian icon, and the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to keep our beaches safe should be celebrated.
Michael believes Kollosche and Kurrawa SLSC have a shared alignment of values including a focus on support, education, health and safety, and protecting the environment.
“It’s great to be able to support the junior nippers and all those involved in Kurrawa Surf Club who keep our beaches safe so we can all enjoy our pristine beaches and coastline,” he says.
Kurrawa SLSC was formed in 1958 and patrols oversee more than 5000 frequent beachgoers daily.
It currently has 440 nippers aged 6 – 14 years and 300 active patrolling members aged 15 – 75.
“It means a great deal to us to have local businesses supporting our club and our nippers,” says Nick Crilly, Operations Manager, Kurrawa SLSC.
“Michael Kollosche is a great ambassador for the surf club and the local community as a whole. We see this as a great collaboration for the community and support for our nippers program.” – Nick Crilly
