Keeping the Coast Guard afloat

TIN Can Bay Coast Guard relies heavily on donations and local community support to keep operating.

Therefore, fundraising is an important aspect of Coast Guard operations. Tin Can Bay members will be hosting regular fundraising barbecues at BCF's new Gympie store, with the first planned for this Saturday from 8.30am.

Join them for a sausage sizzle and cold drinks - an easy, no hassle way to help.

There will also be an opportunity to check out the new rescue vessel, Mount Rescue II (sponsored by the Mount Pleasant Hotel), pick up boating safety information and a membership application form, and grab tickets in the raffle to win a week's holiday on a houseboat.

BCF is a national sponsor of the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association and residents can support their local crew through BCF's in-store Round Up initiative which enables customers to round-up their purchase price to an even dollar figure (or any value they nominate). The "tip" will go towards Coast Guard barbecues, which are held on the second Saturday of the month.
