Dean Kilpatrick, Junior Co-ordinator of the Warrnambool Surf Life Saving Club, says the club received Fonterra funding this year that helped purchase two new surf rescue boards.
“We are thankful for Fonterra’s support which will help us keep our communities safe. The process to apply for the grant was a lot easier than we thought, with a simple application form to complete.”
Since 2011, Fonterra has supported over 300 initiatives across Victoria and Tasmania that focus on bringing communities together, caring for the environment and promoting healthy lifestyles and dairy nutrition.
Andrew Nooy, Regional Operations Manager – West, says that communities are an integral part of Fonterra business, which is why we believe in giving back by helping sustain healthy, vibrant communities through sponsoring ideas, projects and initiatives that make a real impact.
“The Warrnambool Surf Life Saving Club is highly regarded for keeping our communities safe, and provide excellent training for our up and coming Surf Lifesavers.
