Northern NSW : Rescue - Summer 2014
The hangar at Broadmeadow has traditionally been home to the helicopters, but in a first it recently became the backdrop for an elegant high tea. $10,000 was raised during an afternoon indulging in delicious treats and an assortment of teas and champagne from High Tea Delights and McWilliams wines, with a brief interlude while crew, paramedics and doctors boarded the chopper for a mission. A big thanks to sponsor Event Cinemas, guest MCs Carly and Tresne from My Kitchen Rules and to Service Crewmen Graham Nickisson and Glen Ramplin who spoke to the guests about the work of the Service in the community. Newcastle Entertainment Centre was a hive of activity for the 2014 Mining and Engineering NSW (M&E NSW) Exhibition held in October. While the exhibition provided opportunity for organisations working within the mining and energy sector to network and promote, organisers, REEDMININGEVENTS, donated a stand at the expo for the Rescue Helicopter. The Service has worked closely with the mining industry across NSW since 1975 and the expo enabled the Service to extend its message and highlight its work to the entire sector.

The tournament featured teams from the region’s coal mines including Glendell, Ravensworth, Mt Owen, Anvil Hill and Liddell, all competing for the perpetual shield. It was the Anvill Hill Bulls A team that took the title on the day, beating Mt Owen CHPP Mud Dogs 22-6. Singleton Volunteer Support Group chairperson, Jayne Eather, said that the Group was grateful for the support that saw $20,000 raised on the day.
