Volunteer letter expression of interest

The Lions Club of Cabarita Beach and Pottsville Beach Annual Charity Fishing Competition is our major fundraiser and has now been running for 31 years, raising much-needed funds for community organisations. This year we have been fortunate to have major sponsorship support from Tweed Coast Marine, madkeen, Alvey Reels, Anaconda (West Burleigh) and BCF (Ballina). The success of the event is heavily dependent on sponsorship, merchandise sales, raffles, fish auction and the sale of 4WD beach permits. Entrance fees alone cannot cover the costs. Volunteers play a large part of the overall success in the running of the event.

Insurance is covered by the Lions Club, providing volunteers have read the Greenback volunteer safety induction brief, and registered/sign-on before commencing any assigned activity.

There are a number of ways volunteers will be able to assist both prior and during the two-day event (9-10 June 2018), and we have an array of positions available as shown in Table 1.
