Dulux and Surf Life Saving New Zealand (SLSNZ) have partnered to protect Surf Life Saving Clubs against the harsh New Zealand weather conditions they face throughout the year.
First arriving on the shores of New Zealand in 1910 at Lyall Bay and New Brighton, SLSNZ is a charity representing 74 Surf Life Saving Clubs across New Zealand , and over 4500 volunteer Surf Lifeguards who patrol at over 80 locations through summer as well as 40 Emergency Call Out Squads throughout the year.
We are a swimming nation. New Zealand boasts 15,000 km of coastline and 90% of us live within 40 minutes of a beach. But our surf can be a deadly playground. Since 1910, Kiwis have volunteered their weekends to patrol our beaches saving thousands of lives and keeping people safe. Surf Lifeguards can be the difference between life and death and every volunteer Surf Lifeguard knows the powerful motivation of saving or protecting a life.
Learning about the risks and preparing yourself will mean you and your family can enjoy the sun, sea and sand and return home safely. Preventative measures save lives, visit www.surflifesaving.org.nz/stay-safe to learn more.
Many clubs are situated in the places that inspired the Dulux Colours of New Zealand paint range. Dulux is helping to protect the clubs that call these beautiful New Zealand places home.
If you're a member of a surf life saving club, you can receive special trade pricing at Dulux Trade Centres, Guthrie Bowron and Colourplus stores by quoting 'Surf Life Saving' and presenting proof of membership to a surf life saving club in New Zealand.
