Northern NSW : Rescue - Summer 2014
Out and about 1. In July Walcha Rams Rugby Union Club players had the Rescue Helicopter logo sewn onto their shorts to help fundraise for the Walcha Volunteer Support Group. At the end of the day the club donated a cheque for $1,500. 2. On Friday 23 May, Natalie and Brendan Ransom were delivered the devastating news that their three-year-old son, Kane, had leukaemia. Bright and bubbly, Kane came for a visit to the base to see the helicopters and have a sit in the cockpit. 3. In October the Nundle/Hanging Rock Volunteer Support Group presented a cheque for $7,000 to the Service. The money was raised through a number of annual events and fundraising activities. 4. On Sunday 19 October the Denman Volunteer Support Group held its annual Bowls and Bingo day at the Denman Bowling Club. With enormous support throughout the year and a successful raffle and auction on the day, a cheque for $20,000 was presented to the Service. 5. The picturesque Shelly Beach Golf Club held its charity golf day on October 17. Despite the drizzle the spirits of the golfers couldn’t be dampened as everyone chipped in to raise almost $9,000. Thanks to sponsors BJ Howes, Bishop Collins, Insurance House and Priority Business Lawyers. Our picture is of the glorious view down the 16th hole. 6. On Sunday 26 October the Guyra Volunteer Support Group held its annual bike ride and walk at the Mother of Ducks Lagoon. The event was attended by dozens of riders and walkers and was hailed a success by volunteers. 7. It was Christmas time in 2013 and nine-year-old Mia and her family were holidaying at Forster when they went to the local shopping centre and met members of the Forster Volunteer Support Group. Inspired by the volunteers, Mia went back to Lakeside Resort and organised a concert to raise money for the Service. Her concert raised $50. One year on, the family returned to Forster for a holiday and presented the Group with the kind donation. WE ARE SUPPORTED BY MANY WONDERFUL PEOPLE AND ORGANISATIONS WHO UNDERSTAND THE TRUE VALUE OF A DEDICATED RESCUE HELICOPTER IN OUR REGION. 2 3 1 4 5 6 7 16 Rescue Magazine SUMMER 2014
