GME has recently extended our ongoing partnership with Marine Rescue Hawkesbury. In addition to the donation of radio communications equipment for the fit-out of the Hawkesbury 22 rescue boat, GME has now committed an ongoing financial contribution to assist with running costs of Hawkesbury 30, the team’s brand new, state-of-the-art rescue boat.
Marine Rescue Hawkesbury is unique in its operation as one of the smaller units in terms of volunteers, covering one of the largest areas in NSW, with their vessel’s patrols extending over 111km. This includes the full length of the Hawkesbury River and surrounding coastal areas.
In addition to their rescue efforts Marine Rescue Hawkesbury offers support to several major community events such as the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic and Bridge-to-Bridge Water Ski Classic, as well as the New Year’s Eve, Australia Day, and Boxing Day celebrations on Sydney Harbour.
