The male and female Newcastle Permanent Building Society North Coast Branch Junior Lifesaver of the Year will be announced during the team's carnival on January 3.

Fundraising thanks

A BIG thank you to all branch members who had volunteered their time in supporting the fundraising initiatives at Park Beach Plaza.

The response from the general public has been outstanding with not only donations of cash but many a kind word of appreciation for our volunteer services.

With the school holidays commencing we will be at Park Beach Plaza most days so please contact your club for their rostered hours.

It's not too late to help with donation either so please donate generously either by voting for your favourite decorated Christmas Tree located outside Big W, buying a raffle ticket or allowing a surf lifesaver to push your trolley or simply throw a coin in the bucket.
