Holmes was in Byron Bay on Monday, along with Telstra representatives, to attend a presentation at the surf club.
The club was one of 759 clubs in Australia which have received new sporting equipment thanks to the fund.
Three new rescue tubes worth $100 each were purchased with the money.
The Mullumbimby Junior Rugby League Club also received money from the fund.
“I know how important it is to have good equipment at all levels of sport,” Holmes said.
Telstra area general manager for North Coast NSW Michael Sharpe said Telstra was proud to continue to support grassroots and community clubs on the Far North Coast.
“The fund aims to promote a healthy lifestyle and encourage participation in sport,” he said.
