The presence of an equipped lifesaver on a beach can mean the difference between life and death.

Which is why the Alpha Surf Lifesaving Club in Strandfontein is appealing to Capetonians for help after
two burglaries at their clubhouse last month.

Alpha Surf Lifesaving Club is the first black voluntary Surf lifesaving club founded more than 50 years ago.

Chairman Francois Sisam says criminals stole a Yamaha outboard motor worth R40 000 from the lifesaving boat used to conduct rapid response rescues.

In the second break-in, robbers got away with all first aid equipment, including a shark attack kit and a defibrillator, the portable electronic device used for resuscitation.

The local club at Bluewaters Beach says this is a huge blow to their ability to save lives.

Locals can help by donating money towards the club's Freedom Paddle team. Click here for details.

Our club is suffering right now.

There have been some clubs that have disappeared due to this type of thing. Our club has been around since 1961.
