We're still collecting donations

On the 28th May 2020 we'd raised £428 with 21 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Dawlish Warren Life Saving Club is a registered charity that operates at Dawlish Warren beach in South Devon. First formed in 1966, we are a small but longstanding club that provides an ideal setting for likeminded individuals to learn new skills, train, patrol the beach, get involved in lifesaving sport, teach others or just a place by the beach to socially enjoy.

 DWLSC is Affiliated with our governing body; The Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS).

Our charitable objectives include:

  • To teach child members ages 7-16 basic open water skills, increase their awareness of dangers and build confidence within the beach environment in a fun, supportive, safe manner.

  • To teach members aged 16+ advanced open water skills and first aid skills needed to undertake internationally recognized lifeguard qualifications including the National Vocational Beach Lifeguard Qualification (NVBLQ).This training is provided free of charge for members and any costs heavily subsidised.

  • To raise public awareness of beach safety.

  • To lifeguard Dawlish Warren beach throughout the year, independently, and alongside the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) lifeguards.

  • Encourage participation of lifesaving sport and support good sportsmanship above all.

  • Provide a friendly, open, safe welcoming atmosphere within the club.

  • To be intrinsic and active part of the local community, supporting it as much as possible. 

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for our Club. All of our income comes from memberships and generous public donations at our lifesaving demonstrations throughout the summer.

We are asking for donations to help us financially survive 2020, our outgoings are on average £2500 per year.

In the interest of our members safety, the club is currently closed, our running costs however continue, rates, electricity, water, replacing expiring first aid supplies.

None of our donations are used for any wages, all committee governance is voluntary, your donation will go toward the essential needs of our club.
