NSW’s successful State of Origin rugby league coach Brad Fittler has accepted the guest speaker role for Bondi Surf Bathers Life Saving Club popular and annual Legends Lunch.
The lunch will provide guests with an intimate insight and reflection on one of the game’s great minds who this year coached the Blues to a much-awaited series win against Queensland and followed his 300-game career where he achieved almost everything as a player.
Ned Wieland, the Waverley College student who in 2017 became the youngest Australian to swim the English Channel at the age of 16 years and 10 days, will be another of the guests. He recently returned from America where he completed the triple crown of ocean swimming, adding the 20 bridges of New York to his Catalina Island and English Channel swims.
The function, with Fox Sports’ Tony Squires as MC and sponsored by the Royal Oak Hotel, Double Bay, will be held at Doltone House, Darling Island Wharf Pyrmont, from midday on Friday, October 26.
Money raised on the day will finance the club’s voluntary lifesaving activities and a percentage of it will be donated to the RUOK ? Foundation.
