REPLACEMENT BOAT RAMP PROJECT

Help VMR pay for the Replacement Boat Ramp
All dontations over $2 are tax deductable.

VMR Southport is currently undertaking a project to replace the ageing and dilapidated concrete boat ramp at its Rescue Base. This boat ramp is vital to allowing crews to launch the VMR Southport Rescue vessels, often in times of emergencies. After 28 years of use, this boat ramp is developing large cracks in the concrete surface, and becoming structurally unstable, and eventually this will become unsafe to use. In order for us to continue our vital service to the Gold Coasts rapidly increasing boating population, we must replace this boat ramp urgently. VMR Southport is the only 24 hour / 7 day Marine Rescue operation in the Gold Coast area, and you can assist us in raising the $75,000 required for this project.

DONATIONS CAN BE MADE BY DIRECT BANK DEPOSIT TO VMR SOUTHPORT
BSB 064000 A/C 12995538 – COMMONWEALTH BANK

PLEASE USE ‘ VMR PONTOON ‘ as a REFERENCE and include your NAME and VMR Southport MEMBERSHIP NUMBER
