Every morning when I wake up I feel lucky living close to the beach, well you would hope so with a name like Tax by the Beach, but yes it’s true.

I start each day walking the beach, swimming when it’s warm enough and clearing my mind gearing up for the day ahead. This is a true blessing that I will never take for granted.

I know there are many less fortunate than myself, and have made the commitment to donate a portion of each tax return I lodge to support the Bush to Beach program run by Surf Life Saving NSW.

This is a great program to give kids not only the gift of the ocean but importantly, education on water safety and how to have real fun in the sun whilst understanding the dangers involved.

So you can feel good too knowing that indirectly you are supporting this great cause as well.

Stay tuned for events this year and here is the contact if you would like to donate directly to this great cause.
