KEEP an eye out across Perth tomorrow for Royal Life Saving Society WA volunteers and their mascots, Dippy Duck and Walter the Watchdog.

The Mt Claremont-based Royal Life Saving Society of WA is holding its signature fundraising event on Friday, November 3, with all donations going towards their swimming, water safety and drowning prevention programs.

Volunteers will be taking donations at metro train stations and in the CBD from 7am to 9am.

“Every drowning death is preventable, and with your support we can spread the message that everyone can be a lifesaver, whether it be through learning first aid and CPR, leaning to swim, or simply giving up some of your time to support our work to prevent drowning,” Royal Life Saving Society WA chief executive Peter Leaversuch said.

Donations will also assist the organisation in providing financial support to families affected by non-fatal drowning incidents, as they deal with the impact of a life forever changed.

Money can also be put in one of the Quackers collection ducks on more than 3,000 shop counters across Perth.
