Surfers Joel Parkinson, Bede Durbidge and Mark Occhilupo were just some of the big names helping to raise much needed funds for the Currumbin Wildlife Hopsital at Currumbin Alley today.
The surfing legends took part in the Surfing Services Australia Wildlife Fundraiser, which saw locals enjoying surfing and yoga lessons throughout the morning.
Joel Parkinson told myGC it was important for the community to come together to support a good cause.

“The Currumbin Wildlife Hospital has been inundated lately – it’s part of our local community, I am a local so I just wanted to be down here to support them,” he said.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital to assist in their vital work of treating, rehabilitating and releasing sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife.
The Currumbin Wildlife Hospital is one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world, admitting over 12,200 animals a year, including 600 Koalas – a service that is provided free of charge to the community.
