WHEN fire destroyed the Gove Surf Life Saving Club house and vital lifesaving equipment in Arnhem Land earlier this year, members of Yamba SLSC knew how they felt.

In 2010 the Yamba clubhouse also suffered a major fire, and on hearing the news Yamba SLSC members quickly agreed to donate $1000 to help with the recovery at Gove.

Yamba SLSC deputy chairman Andrew Morris said the connection also led to the decision to send 13 talented Yamba nippers to compete in Gove in September.

"After contacting them and providing any assistance we could, it came to light that the Nippers at Gove have few competition opportunities as they live 1000km from their nearest surf club," Andrew Morris said.

"It was then discussed that an exchange program would be introduced where nippers from the Clarence Valley would compete and experience the way of life of nippers in Arnhem Land and those kids would come to the Clarence Valley."

Yamba nippers need to raise $8000 and have achieved more than half.
