UKRANIAN FAMILIES ENJOY A DAY AT MANLY LSC
Last Sunday Manly Nippers hosted dozens of Ukrainian families to enjoy a surf lifesaving experience. There was surf education, surf swimming, board paddling, lots of freebies supplied by the club and our sponsors including Harris Farm. Sarah Emmott Bennett should be applauded to making this happen.
Thank you to Manly LSC Nippers and their families along with our Youth and Open competitors who provided assistance as Water Safety, Age Managers, BBQ crew and not to mention our coaches providing paddling lessons and Bronzies teaching Surf Education.
Thank you also to Rex Morris for capturing the magical moments of the day on camera.
A special thanks to our Risk and Lifesaving directors who ensured we had the right approvals completed. A truly whole club effort!
