Coolum Surf Club needs your HELP!

Update from Malcolm Wright General Manager of Coolum Surf Club

So that you are aware, we are looking after our staff the best way we can during this shutdown period. For the first month of the shutdown we are continuing to pay ALL staff including casuals who have been with us for more than a year. This will hopefully give our staff enough time to either obtain government support and or another job to help them out during these tough times. After the first month our permanent staff are able to access their leave entitlements so that they continue to be paid. If their leave entitlement become exhausted we are making their sick leave entitlements available for them to access. It’s an extraordinary time and we are supporting our staff as much as possible to help them through.

To assist our staff with their mental health during these sad times we have an Employment Assistance Program in place for all our staff which gives each staff member and a member of their family access to 6 counselling sessions per year. These sessions remain confidential and will become a lifeline for our team if they are mentally or emotionally struggling during this time.

But we need your help! During this forced closure the Club has no income coming through the doors so we are doing a membership drive so that we can survive this forced closure and thrive once we re-open. Our goal is to get 10,000 new members and membership renewals during this Coronavirus Pandemic and we hope that you can help. You can join or renew online by clicking this link https://www.coolumapp.com.au/membership Please share this letter with as many people as possible so we get the word out. We will be adding 6 months onto any membership purchased, so if you join for a year you will get 18 months membership.

Not only will you be helping us keep Coolum Beach safe but you also get some great benefits from being a member of Coolum Surf Club. These benefits include – Discounts on food and drinks, a birthday voucher every year worth up to $20, easy access into our club and many reciprocal clubs throughout Australia, loyalty points by swiping your card through our Kiosk and in our gaming room, and most importantly you become a family member of the Coolum Surf Club team.

For any existing or new members who have a birthday during our closure period, please keep your birthday vouchers as we will honour these when we re-open.

We also have gift cards available for online purchase which come with a 3 year expiry date should you wish to support us in that way. Get one for yourself or send one to a friend for them to use when we re-open. You can purchase a gift card for Coolum Surf Club by clicking here https://www.coolumapp.com.au/gift-card

Thank you once again for your ongoing support of our club and we so look forward to the day that we can reopen and welcome you back to enjoy the hospitality of Coolum Surf Club.
