Old4New Lifejacket Upgrade Campaign

It's over for another year! The summer 2016/2017 Old4New Lifejacket Upgrade saw over 3,200 lifejackets traded in for new across the country - meaning over 3,200 people are now safer on the water.

Thanks to everyone who visited us as the Old4New van traveled the country. We visited 40 locations across the country, bringing the water safety message to communitires large and small.
