TOP NSW LIFESAVERS HONOURED AT THE 2020 STATE AWARDS
The achievements of Surf Life Saving NSW’s finest were celebrated at the annual Surf Life Saving NSW Awards of Excellence on Saturday 29 August. Over 180 finalists, along with their friends, family and the wider Surf Life Saving community, took part in the virtual awards ceremony.
The annual Awards of Excellence event celebrates the outstanding achievements of volunteer surf lifesavers across surf sports, education, administration, membership and lifesaving.
This year, the awards were hosted virtually due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions. The state’s top surf lifesavers were honoured in front of their peers with members from across NSW joining the virtual event via live streaming.
The Services Team of the Year was awarded to the Batemans Bay Bushfire Response Team, Batemans Bay SLSC.
We watched the virtual awards in anticipation as our very own cadet Elli Beecham was nominated in the Youth Athlete of the Year category.
