Turf Club and TAB will raise money for Surf Club at Esperance Cup

The Esperance Turf Club and Community TAB have joined up to raise money for the Esperance Goldfields Surf Life Saving Club.

Funds will be raised by Surf Club volunteers at the Esperance Cup, which will be held on Sunday March 4, 2018.

Community TAB will match any funds collected by the club on the day.

The money raised will go towards equipment for lifeguards on patrol.

Esperance Bay Turf Club secretary Jennifer Brown said the initiative will contribute to the community’s safety.

“The Esperance Goldfields Surf Lifesaving Club provides lifesaving services to the Esperance region as well as educating young people and the wider community about surf safety,” Ms Brown said.

Racing and Wagering WA chairman Jeff Ovens, said the Surf Club was one of more than 50 local groups the TAB will support in WA in 2018.
