£2 from the sale of every bead will be donated to SLSGB, to help share vital lifesaving skills and beach education to the community, to make people safer by the sea.
With a head office in Exeter, SLSGB is proud to be working with another Devon-based company – Nalu Beads is based in Braunton, north Devon. The Surf Life Saving bead will be available through SLSGB, online and across Nalu Beads stockists nationwide.
The Surf Life Saving Nalu Bead, like all Nalu Beads, is individually hand-made using the finest Effetre Murano glass from Italy, and depicts the classic lifesaving colours of red and yellow, with a wave effect through the middle.
SLSGB is a charity of over 5,000 volunteers nationwide, with nearly 40 Surf Life Saving Clubs in the Devon and Cornwall region alone. SLSGB members provide beach lifeguard training, community beach education and volunteer beach lifeguard patrols. Members also compete in Life Saving Sport – the sport of Lifeguards – to hone their lifesaving skills.
Esther Pearson, chief executive of Surf Life Saving GB said: “This is the start of an exciting new partnership and we’re really proud of the Surf Life Saving Bead. We hope the beads not only raise vital funds to continue and increase the work we’re doing, but also help spread awareness of the great work SLSGB clubs and members are doing to make people safer on our beaches.”
Nalu Beads Director Lisa Adams said: “We are involved with our local Surf Life Saving Club so know the fantastic work SLSGB clubs do to make many beaches around the UK safer places to be. We wanted to support the hard work everyone is doing, and to help SLSGB take important beach safety information and training to even more people.”
The SLSGB bead will retail for £10.95 and be available from 16th April at www.nalubeads.com and through their stockists, and through Surf Life Saving GB.
