Northern NSW : Rescue Winter15
A perfect Autumn afternoon at Merewether Golf Course set the scene for one of the game’s most entertaining and charitable events. Long-term supporter of the Rescue Helicopter and the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation, Michelle Faithfull, with the assistance of dozens of local businesses held the fifth Divas on the Green event for about 160 women in early May. In an afternoon with plenty of laughs, just as many costumes and lots of fun on and off the picturesque course, charity was the winner on the day raising about $9,000 for each cause – a great effort given the first event raised about $5,000 in total. Photographs generously provided by Cleo Pedemonte. The annual Helicopter High Tea again provided a wonderful excuse for about 140 women to catch up with their mums, daughters, sisters, best friends, nieces, aunties, cousins or work colleagues. With a glass of bubbles on arrival and a table full of delicious delights the stage was set for an afternoon of high tea and fundraising led by special guest presenters Carly and Tresne from the highly successful MKR TV series. More than 50 businesses helped make the annual event held at Sinclair’s in Warners Bay a great success raising more than $7,500 for the Service. A procession of trucks from Sandgate to the Newcastle Foreshore kicked off the 2014 Transport Awareness Day in November last year to raise awareness of safe road use and the work of the transport industry. For 21 years Transport Awareness Day has supported the Service by holding a family fun day with carnival rides, kid activities, demonstrations and live entertainment. Event Chairman Pete Black said that new categories were added into the signature Truck Parade and Ute Muster competitions with good numbers of drivers and companies involved helping to raise $64,000 for the Service. Divas on the Green Helicopter High Tea 21st event celebrates outstanding community support Members of the Newcastle and Hunter Transport Awareness Group recently visited the team at the Service to present the funds raised from the 21st event. 19 Rescue Magazine WINTER 2015
