On 30th August 2014 the community of Gerringong held ‘Gerringong’s Wave of Relief’, a fundraising Music Trivia Night to raise funds for Surf Aid International.
Surf Aid International support island communities who are devasted with natural disasters and are then faced with poverty and malnutrition. The lives of many people in these villages is a struggle against hardship and disease and requires ongoing support. Since the 2004 tsunami, the Gerringong/Gerroa community has supported the Surf Aid charity in providing on-going financial support for the people of the Mentawai Islands of West Sumatra in Indonesia.
The success of this event is largely a reflection of the generosity of the local residents and sponsors amongst Gerringong. The local support is greatly appreciated and a huge thank you is owed to everyone who contributed to a great night and for making a difference to those less fortunate.
