The Preece family have recently presented the funds they have raised for the SwimSafe program to Royal Life Saving Society – Australia via the Royal Life Saving Society – Commonwealth. Parents Phil and Kathryn and their three daughters, Nicola (12), Rebecca (10) and Hannah (6) were so moved by the drowning statistics across Asia that, as a family, they raised funds for the SwimSafe program through a variety of different endeavours.
Accepting the cheque on behalf of SwimSafe, Clive Holland, Deputy Commonwealth President of the Royal Life Saving Society said “it was wonderful to meet the Preece family who as a family have raised money for such a worthy cause. To hear the girls say that they take learning to swim for granted and that learning about SwimSafe made them realise not everyone is so fortunate to learn a skill that can save their lives was inspiring. Their efforts really will make a difference.”
