SA's youngest Surf Life Saving Club is receiving a $28,000 gift today.

Masonic Charities is handing over a new 4WD car to the Goolwa Surf Life Saving Club to replace a 25-year-old model that is no longer fit for purpose.

The new Mitsubishi GLX Club Cab will be used to transport rescue equipment to volunteer GSLSC crews who patrol Goolwa Beach and other areas including Middleton through to the Murray Mouth between October and April. 

Last season, volunteers performed 2700 patrol hours involving 16 rescues, 77 first aid cases and  465 preventative actions. 

Founded in December 2010 with 26 members, Goolwa Surf Life Saving Club (GSLSC) has grown to more  than 250 members, and was named Surf Club of the Year in 2017.
