We love Collaroy!
The board recognise:
Importance of directors and staff collaborating to take a hands-on role at community events
A strong link between healthy, outdoor activity and good civic behaviour in young people
Importance of establishing a recognised and branded partnership between community events and the club
Capitalising on the club’s unique location
Taking an entrepreneurial approach to community events.
Thus, The Beach Club has developed and supported many significant community events using the beach as a backdrop; e.g. Collaroy Sub Branch Anzac Day Dusk Service, Family Christmas Carols and the Annual Charity Golf Day supporting Bear Cottage.
In addition, the club supports many other organisations over and above ClubGRANTS contributions; Heart Kids Research, Sydney Children's Hospital Christmas Party, Clubs in the Community Fundraiser and Charity Bowls Day, Warringah Disability Service (disabled surfers), Collaroy Plateau Public School, Cromer Senior Campus, Northern Beaches Interchange (disability support), Queensland Flood Appeal, Mona Vale Hospital, Club Friday (disability service) and Responsible Service of Alcohol training for schools.
To plan for the future viability of the club whilst being mindful of the uniqueness of the club and its membership. A community partnership should:
Raise the profile, standing and reputation of the club within the community;
Engage young people, teach the importance of team work and encourage positive behaviours;
Be inclusive of minority groups that contribute to Collaroy’s community, culture, education, health and sporting involvement as well as events of significance;
Encourage excellence, innovation and inclusiveness in community participation;
Provide opportunities for the board, staff and club members to volunteer and/or collaborate; or
Allow additional revenues to be raised to support the funded organisation.
Bush Fire Appeal
The Beach Clubs Sub Clubs (Snooker, Golf & Fishing Clubs) along with the Collaroy Surf Club donated all the money raised from raffles during January. Along with donations from our members they have raised $3738.
The Beach Club has matched this figure & therefore has donated $7476. to the Bush Fire Appeal.
Anzac Day Dusk Service
Every year on Anzac Day, The Beach Club manages one of the only Dusk Services in NSW. The April 25 service is a moving commemoration befitting the importance of the day and involves many representatives from the community. The club supplies food and beverage for those who participate in the formal march as well as dignitaries, police and cadet unit representatives.
A representative from the local cadet unit gives a speech to the assembled parade and spectators. This is followed by the laying of the wreath at sea by the Collaroy SLSC Boat with oars raised. The club’s directors and managers provide assistance for veterans onto and off the beach.
