The Bill Wynne Memorial Scholarship has been created in memory of Bill Wynne, a local farmer who generously gifted a sum of money to the Sunset Beach Lifeguard Service of New Zealand with the request it be put towards development of the club. The scholarship, administered by the Sunset Beach Lifesaving Charitable Trust, is used to enable developmental opportunities for emerging Sunset Beach lifeguardswho demonstrate outstanding leadership potential.
The scholarship funds a lifeguard educational programme for two Sunset Beach Lifeguards to visit Australia's Central or Gold Coast beaches to expand their knowledge of Surf Lifesaving and increase their personal development skills.
This year’s recipients are: Taylor Shrimpton and Grace Poole
Taylor and Grace leave for Australia this weekend for a week, we wish them well.
