    Hello there I just came across this event for the 18th at Altona on Facebook, I am a life saver with Altona life saving club and have 100’s of hours as a snorkelling instructor at the Portsea camp, my day job is as an integration aid working with young people with a verity of needs, I’m not sure if you are in need of any volunteers but on the off chance you are I would be very happy to assist.
    I have a WWCC and am an employee of the department of education.
