Tap to Donate

With fewer people carrying cash, we all have less spare change to throw into the charity boxes. Fewer fundraisers to attend, which unfortunately means a little less support for our charity which always needs your help & support so we can be out there saving lives on the water.
To encourage impulse donations we have installed a contactless donation unit at the end of Horseshoe Bay Public Dock on the side of our Station.
If you happen to be passing please consider tapping your card or device to make a small donation to help us help you, we’d be really grateful.
