Facelift powered by crew
THE Tooheys New Crew finished their renovations of the Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club on Saturday with more than 150 people turning up to be shouted a beer by rugby league legend Paul “Chief” Harragon.
The surf club received a huge facelift to its downstairs area with roller doors installed, a new floor surface, a flammable liquid storage area and an area for the rescue vehicles to be housed.
The Tooheys New Crew challenged the Cudgen Headland lifesavers to a surfboat race which the local team won.
Tweed Shire Mayor Kevin Skinner attended the event to officially unveil the renovations, and Tweed MP Geoff Provest presented the club with a new state flag.
Tooheys brand director Jon Bradshaw said the Tooheys New Crew is inspired by the idea of a beer economy – where a mate does you a favour and you say thanks with a beer.
“We're aiming to complete a million beers worth of favours,” he said.
