Northern NSW : Celebrating 40 years Rescue December2015
Dog day afternoon Postbag THE SERVICE PLAYED ITS PART IN MAKING A SPECIAL DAY FOR TIM JACKSON WHEN THE KNIGHTS PLAYED HIS BELOVED BULLDOGS ON AUGUST 29. TIM HAS BEEN STRUGGLING WITH LEUKAEMIA FROM AGE 11. THERE ARE MANY WAYS OF SUPPORTING THE WESTPAC RESCUE HELICOPTER SERVICE. HERE IS A LETTER FROM SOME PROUD PARENTS OF A REAL SUPPORTER. I am writing to pass on our heartfelt thanks for the collective generosity and all-round great time you afforded my son Tim and myself on Saturday. Tim still has a smile on his face. From the visit to the chopper, to the football and subsequent entry into the Bulldogs’ dressing room, we won’t forget the buzz. To all your staff, players and other associates we could not have been treated with more professionalism, respect and friendliness. We do not know how long Tim has left so to tick these off his bucket list was wonderful. He has had a passion to fly ever since he was airlifted to Sydney 10 years ago. He is trying to get his solo permit before things turn for the worse. I’ll keep this short, but know your entities are being praised by us at every opportunity. Thank you again. PS. To James Graham for giving Tim his playing boots. Nice touch. Regards, Brad and Tim Jackson There are many ways of supporting the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. Volunteers give their time to enable fundraising events while others join up to payroll deduction schemes. Here is a letter from some proud parents of a real supporter Ian Gilroy, better known as ‘Skip’, is a 26 year old young man from Stroud who suffers from cerebral palsy. What Skip lacks in size, he makes up for in adventure. Apart from getting out on the water with Sailability in Raymond Terrace and dolphin watching along the coast, Skip loves to watch the helicopters come and go, especially the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. Every year, Gloucester holds a Fly In that raises money for the wonderful Service and every year Skip is there watching. He has even had the opportunity to go up in a locally owned helicopter and for a person who doesn’t say very much, no one could get a word in due to the excitement that Skip was having. Skip in his own way has continued to support the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and the look on his face when he was given a framed photo of the WRHS helicopter was one of pure happiness. Thank you WRHS for bringing happiness into a young man’s life. Judy and Garry Gilroy (Skip’s parents) Captain’s pick 25 Rescue Magazine CELEBRATING 40 YEARS SPECIAL EDITION
