Northern NSW : Rescue - Spring 2014
For 15 years Helen and Terry Cousin have passionately supported the Rescue Helicopter. Together they joined their local Volunteer Support Group in Singleton after the Rescue Helicopter assisted a close friend’s daughter. They then helped establish the Maitland Volunteer Support Group and since moving to Stockton they have assisted with events run by the Newcastle Volunteer Support Group. Three years ago they helped establish the Stockton Volunteer Support Group which has now expanded to seven members; including Michael and Sue Hanna, Richard and Kylie Barry, and David Croft. Helen said the Stockton community was not very large but was very supportive. ‘ T he local businesses and community are always thrilled to see us out and about and are fantastic at supporting us with prizes for raffles, or even throwing a couple of dollars in the tin – every little bit counts.’ Recently the group held its annual Christmas in July fundraiser which attracted more than 110 people to the Stockton Bowling Club.
