Hampton Life Saving Club is situated on Beach Road, Hampton on Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne, Australia. Hampton Beach is patrolled by volunteer lifesavers every Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday from mid November to Easter Monday. The club has over nine hundred members, mostly families living in the Melbourne suburbs surrounding Hampton.
A key fundraising and social activity, so get involved in your local community by asking your schools and work places to spend the day in their favorite board shorts and donate for a great cause at the same time. Check out boardiesday.com.au to get involved in fundraising or to make a donation to support lifesaving across Australia. Then in the evening head down to HLSC at 6pm for our Boardies Day Sundowner. BYO everything to eat and drink, together with gold coins to donate and join in the fun on the beach.
