Thanks to the people who play Lotterywest games, we provided a grant of $11,199 to support full-length steamer wetsuits to ensure sessions continue throughout the colder months, and life jackets to keep everyone feeling confident and comfortable. It has also helped Ocean Heroes expand the number of events this year from just eight in 2018 to 34 across our WA beaches.
