Maxi Maxwell from Bondi Rescue addressed guests at a Cleveland high tea fundraiser

Leigh Mason and lifeguard and firefighter, Trent "Maxi" Maxwell of Bondi Rescue fame hosted the inaugural Live Learn Survive High Tea fundraiser at The Courthouse Restaurant at Cleveland, with Maxi addressing the 60 guests via Zoom from Sydney.

Leigh and Maxi founded the social enterprise, Live Learn Survive in 2018 after discovering a mutual passion for water safety education and the desire to "give every child and young adult, no matter their location or background, the opportunity to learn key lifesaving skills".

Thousands of dollars were raised at the event which will fund the donation of 250 copies of Leigh and Maxi's first children's picture book, Maxi's Beach Rescue to regional school libraries through The Backpack Venture and Survivors R Us Book Drive.
