The winner of our Friends competition was Michael De Jongh, who chose his wife Nicolette as his friend to ‘Be a Hero for a Day’! Michael and Nicolette won the opportunity to attend a training session with our Sea Rescue volunteers and chose Station 18, Melkbosstrand. They visited the station this weekend and had a great time with the crew, experiencing what it was like to train as a Sea Rescue volunteer.
“They are a great couple and certainly deserved to win the Friends competition,” said Station Commander Rhine Barnes. “Our volunteers enjoyed the training exercise as much as our “Hero of the day!”
This campaign was designed to introduce more people to Sea Rescue – we made 1 204 new friends !
