The Appco Group Sports Division in Australia has been commended for its efforts in raising money for Surf Life Saving New South Wales (SLS NSW).

Appco Group has managed the SLS NSW raffle program for the past 12 months, and has achieved an incredible 121 per cent increase in sales over this period.

More than 70,000 SLS NSW members patrol New South Wales' coast each year. The proceeds of the raffle go towards expensive but vital equipment, allowing New South Wales beaches to be as safe as possible.

"The massive role Appco Group plays within the raffle has ensured its enormous success," said SLS NSW Fundraising Event Co-ordinator James King. "It has become the main profit generating source for providing the essential items for our surf life savers."

"We greatly appreciate the work Appco Group does and hope the same level of devotion and enthusiasm will continue into the future. You should be proud of your conscientious efforts and understand that the raffle program and Appco Group provide an essential part of what we are trying to accomplish here at Surf Life Saving which is to save people's lives," Mr King said.

Appco Group Sports Australia Managing Director David Legudi said he was very proud of the work the team carried out. "It is a great achievement to raise vital funds for this important cause," Mr Legudi said. "We relish the opportunity to give a boost to associations like Surf Life Saving NSW that would otherwise not be able to run such extensive campaigns."
