Allan Hall and Big Hill Beach Cottages placed third at the 2021 Beecraft SurfAid Cup
It was not a great beach day but we still had a fantastic time competing for the 7th year in a row at the annual Beecraft SurfAid Cup, held at Manly Beach last Friday 26 November, raising vital funds for SurfAid’s Mother and Child Health Programmes.
This year, Allan Hall again joined forces with Big Hill Beach Cottages and our formidable combined line-up placed third in a hotly contested surfing final.
The team consisted of Greg Anderson and Jake Somerville surfing for Allan Hall, Rob Bain surfing for Big Hill Beach Cottages plus long-time associate of Allan Hall, Ben Hamilton.
Through our outstanding fundraising, we were able to pick well known professional surfer Matt Wilkinson who was volunteering his expertise in honour of the event and certainly added to our team’s success.
The day is certainly about surfing to raise awareness, and we are extremely proud of our fundraising efforts this year, for which our team raised $10,200 for SurfAid’s Mother & Child Health Programmes thanks to our clients and friends.
Overall fundraising efforts from all teams involved in the 2021 SurfAid Cup came to an incredible total of $146,235. We would like to thank everyone involved in this year’s competition, and we would especially like to thank those who donated to our team and supported us on the day!
