Jandal Day to raise funds for lifeguards Jandals will be the order of the day on Friday as Kiwis wear their flip- flops in support of National Jandal Day. It s Surf Life Saving New Zealand s fourth annual appeal day. Chief executive Grant Florence says the organ- isation relies heavily on the generosity of public donations and its sponsors to help make the beaches safer. Surf lifeguards made more than 1470 rescues last summer and put in more than 198,000 vol- unteer hours -- that kind of commitment is appreciated by the public of New Zealand. National Jandal Day gives Kiwis a chance to show their appreciation for the essential service we provide. This year s appeal is particularly significant -- Surf Life Saving New Zealand is celebrating 100 years of service. During that time surf lifeguards have saved more than 50,000 lives. In the past Kiwis have been very generous. We raised more than $350,000 last year so we re hoping in our centenary year the pub- lic will get right behind National Jandal Day and give generously to sup- port us going into the next 100 years. Collectors will be out in force on Friday. Donations can be made to the street collectors or at any State Insurance branch. Go to www.national jandalday.co.nz to make an online donation or text BEACH to 4483 to make an instant $3 donation Donations can also be posted to: Surf Life Saving, PO Box 9205, Wellington 6141, Freepost 100280.
