Why: It’s Surf Life Saving’s national appeal week. We are an essential charity and need the public’s support to raise money to help lifeguards save more lives on New Zealand’s beaches this summer.

National Jandal Day was first launched in December 2007 and this year it has been expanded into a wider ‘Appeal Week’ of which Jandal Day is a part. The week concludes with Coca Cola Christmas in the Park to which Surf Life Saving is the recipient charity.
