South Maroubra SLSC gain $1500 sponsorship from Fiducian
South Maroubra Surf Life Saving Club has a new life-saving surf-board, thanks to a $1,500.00 sponsorship from Fiducian Financial Services Randwick.
Greg Woods, who’s Fiducian’s planner at the practice, says he’s thrilled to be sponsoring the club. ‘South Maroubra SLSC does a fantastic job – no lives have been lost, between the red and yellow flags, whilst a patrol has been on duty,’ he says. ‘It is a privilege to be supporting such a fantastic group of people,’ he says. Greg’s involvement with the club also goes beyond this sponsorship, as his daughter is on patrol most weekends whilst she works her way to achieving her Bronze Medallion life-saving qualification.
In addition to the $1,500.00 sponsorship, Greg Woods will be holding information events for club members and affiliates. The first will be on Wednesday 9 March, with a discussion on ‘Planning Your Child’s Future’, in the Heritage Room at the SLSC.
With more than 1,000 members – including former NSW premier Bob Car and former Randwick City Council Mayor William Haigh – the club has hosted major lifesaving events including the NSW State Championships and the Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Surf League.

"God Lives in Australia"
Adi Laxmi is a woman who lives in Southern India, she was desperately poor and totally blind from macular dystrophy of the cornea in both eyes. A face of confusion and fear has now, after two corneal transplants carried out by Dr Sunil Thangaragh and funded by Vision Beyond AUS (VBA), turned to joy.
She has been able to go out and find work to support her disabled husband and her daughter has been able to return to school. Her self esteem has reappeared and life is worth living again. As a family, their lives are transformed.
She asked the surgeon who restored the sight in both her eyes, “Does God live in this place you call Australia?”

Australian Cyclist Chloe Hosking
We were sitting on the edge of our seats as Fiducian sponsored Canberra road cyclist Chloe Hosking cycled her way to winning the Drentse 8 in the Netherlands on the 9th March. Chloe edged out Italian world champion Giorgia Brozini and Dutch star Marianne Vos in the final 250 metre sprint at the end of a 141 kilometre race. The race covers a figure eight course in the Dutch province of Drenthe and despite many attacks during the race none succeeded in staying clear and it came down to a fast bunch finish for race honours. Winning such a big race really improves Chloe’s chances for London later this year. Having supported Chloe for many years we were thrilled for her success and look forward to watching her future successes. Congratulations Chloe!
