Northern NSW : Rescue Winter15
In its inaugural year, the Pacific National Chopper Cup charity dinner and race day has raised $25,000 for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. Formerly the Cotton Cup, the cotton industry welcomed the approach of the Service to come on board as a partner for the event. The event was managed by the Moree Volunteer Support Group with the support of lots of local business and major sponsor Pacific National. Pacific National representative Amelia Olsen spoke with the Moree Champion during the event and said the donation was ‘truly fantastic’. ‘I know the team and I at Pacific National are so happy we were a part of the events in Moree, and the generosity and hospitality from the town was just incredible,’ Ms Olsen said. The company has confirmed it will be back again in 2016 as the major sponsor. A cheque for $1,500 was also given to race-day supporter the Ashley Rural Fire Brigade. Pictured are David and Di Wheaton, Lenice and Craig Muggleton, Gemille Hayes and Gail Goldman (Chairperson, Moree Support Group). A record 188 players teed off at the 17th annual Tamworth Golf Day. From beginners to pros, players enjoyed the social day with the barbecue run by West Tamworth Rotary Club, followed by an evening of entertainment with Mick Meredith and the charity auction. Interest actually exceeded the course capacity this year – with the Tamworth business community throwing its support behind the event. A big thanks to major sponsor Capital Body Works and event partners KCE, Avro Metaland, Sibelco, Lysaghts Refrigeration & Air Conditioning, Bishop Collins, Insurance House, Priority Buisiness Lawyers, Palfinnger, Gough Transport Solutions and Steggles, all working together to raise more than $25,000 for the Service.

Dedicated ‘green fingers’ from the beautiful New England town of Walcha have brought their skills to bear for the Service. The Walcha Garden Club raised $44,000 for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and local charities from its festival. A tremendous effort.
