Bondi Surf Bathers Life Saving Club

No Lives Lost at Bondi Beach

A pause to reflect on the life of Louise Santos

Last night (Wednesday 27th September 2023 ) the club came together to reflect on the life of Louise Santos, our most recent life member, who passed away while on holiday in France on Tuesday.

She leaves behind her husband, Stu and her nipper son Josh – the club extends our sympathies and support to them. The family has asked that people do not send flowers, but would welcome donations to the club to set up a memorial award in Louise’s name – you can donate here https://bondisurfclub.com/get-involved/partner-with-us/donate/ and in the “In honour of” box please type “Louise Santos Fund”

She also leaves behind all of her aqua cap Nippers, her beloved board and competition sections, and the club that she made such a fundamental part of her life.

We will remember and recognise her life and service more formally when the family can return from overseas, but members were asked to think of their own special memories of Louise – her presence on the beach, her smiling face, her can-do attitude, her encouraging words and her hearty laugh.

The club will advise when a formal memorial date has been arranged.

We thank everyone who attended and those who provided messages of support to the family on Facebook. We ask that people respect the families privacy at this time of grieving.
