Northern NSW : Rescue Winter15
WRHS Community Liaison and Media Officer Barry Walton said he was delighted with the donation, which would help ensure the Service continued to deliver vital assistance to people across the Hunter. ‘We have four helicopters participating in more than 1,000 missions each year across the Hunter, New England, Central Coast and Mid North Coast Regions, so donations and support from the community are very important,’ Mr Walton said. ‘We are very thankful to Anglo American for this donation, which will help the Service continue its work and ensure no person has to pay for helicopter transportation. ‘Drayton has been a supporter of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service for some time through workplace giving donations and we appreciate its ongoing support.’ Drayton Commercial Manager Patrick Clancy said Anglo American had always been a strong supporter of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter and the excellent service it provided to the industry and local community. ‘We couldn’t be happier making this donation to ensure this critical service can continue,’ Mr Clancy said. ‘The Westpac Rescue Helicopter provides an invaluable service within our community, delivering life-saving support to hundreds of people in need every year. ‘We are also proud of the ongoing contributions our Drayton employees continue to make towards the Westpac Rescue Helicopter through our workplace giving scheme.’ The donation came about as a result of the very successful Drayton South Community barbecue held in Singleton on 21 March, where Anglo American donated a total of more than $24,000 to local charities.
