Community Service

Liam Petrie-Allbutt has successfully co-run the Point Lonsdale Surf Life Saving Club's Rip View Swim Classic for three consecutive years; significantly improving its profitability for the club’s fund raising effort; as-well as improving the swim’s marketability for growth.

Liam co-initiated the 3.8km Rip View Swim Classic in 2015, which extends from Queenscliff to Point Lonsdale. This event is an annual sell-out. 

Liam was recognised in 2016 as the Borough of Queenscliffe’s "Young Citizen of the Year".

Liam's Nippers in School Program was also recognised in 2017 as the Borough of Queenscliffe's "Community Service of the Year".
