One of our early morning swimmers, James has also been quietly carrying out a very important job for the club, hosting in his warehouse 34 pallets of our supplies for the bushfires. He’d turned up in the Main Hall, ready to get his hands dirty on one of those mad mornings in early January and was set to the task of wiping down, sorting and packing hundreds of pairs of new shoes donated by Max from Max’s Shoes. When we realised just how much we would have to put into storage, James offered us his warehouse. He also introduced us to the owner of the kayak that we auctioned that raised $5,500 for bushfire relief. James can often be seen limbering up in the hall early in the morning, and we thank him for helping the Club deliver on its promises to the South Coast. James is always ready with a smile and friendly greeting.
