Golden Circle® and Surf Life Saving Australia launch summer safety checklist and encourage residents to join the Sunny Saviour movement

Summer is set to look a little different this year, so Golden Circle® and Surf Life Saving Australia have released a surf safety checklist to help West Aussies share sunshine safely and still enjoy the water.

“55 per cent of drownings on the coast last year occurred more than 5km away from a lifesaving service. This summer, we are asking Aussies to STOP before rushing in and check for rip currents, LOOK for other dangers and a patrolled location, and PLAN to stay safe and know your limitations and swim between the red and yellow flags,” said Shane Daw, General Manager Coastal Safety, Surf Life Saving Australia.

“Additionally, we’re asking beachgoers to practice social distancing and to stay at home if you feel unwell. By ticking items off our Share Sunshine Safely checklist and working together we can keep our beaches open and enjoy them safely this year,” said Shane Daw, General Manager Coastal Safety, Surf Life Saving Australia.”

Golden Circle® is also encouraging West Aussies to jump on board the Sunny Saviours movement and celebrate the person in their lives who gets them outside, loves to play and brings the light and laughter to their day.

“Seven Surf Life Saving Sunny Saviours were recently recognised for their dedication and commitment to not only saving lives but brightening the lives of people around them simply by sharing a little sunshine. Now we want to celebrate our local Western Australian Sunny Saviours,” Sachin Rajpal, Head of Marketing-Beverages at Kraft Heinz ANZ.

“After a tougher than normal year, it’s important we take the time to honour people who brought joy and sunshine to our year. I’m calling on all West Aussies to shout out who their local sunny saviour is and how
they brighten the lives of people around them by using #mysunnysaviour.
“What better way to finish off the year than by celebrating those moments of fun, happiness and positivity amongst Aussie family and friends, no matter how big or small.”

Sunny Saviours is the first initiative for the newly formed partnership between Golden Circle® and Surf Life Saving Australia. As part of their commitment to the community and Surf Life Saving Australia, a $50,000 donation will be provided on behalf of Golden Circle® from Kraft Heinz Australia. The donation will support Surf Life Saving Australia to continue providing vital lifesaving services to the community during the
upcoming summer season.

West Aussies can check out the Share Sunshine Safety checklist on the Golden Circle® Facebook page.
