“ For many years I have watched the Life Saving Chaplaincy commence with a few dedicated Chaplains to then expand into the well respected organisation it is today. Life Saving Chaplaincy continues to provide guidance and support to all members, family and supporters of Lifesaving and International Lifesaving. I am proud to join the team as an ambassador and to promote and advocate the values and the services the Chaplaincy provides to Lifesaving and International Lifesaving”
