Northern NSW : Rescue Aut 2016
Cotton Seed Distributors (CSD) staged another great ‘Partnership Day’ on 9 March at its head office at ‘Shenstone’, Wee Waa. In presenting a cheque to the Rescue Helicopter, CSD General Manager – Development and Communications, Philip Armytage, spoke candidly about the Service and offered thanks for ‘being there’. ‘ CSD is proud to be associated with the Westpac Rescue Helicopter,’ Mr Armytage said. ‘ Supporting the Service is important to CSD and to the communities in which our staff live.’ Relationship grows Keeping a focus The Rescue Helicopter base at Tamworth had a colourful and welcome visitor on 25 February. Steve Jones from the Outlaw Hot Rod Club turned up in his wife’s 1932 Ford closed pick-up fitted out with a 302 Windsor engine and painted in Ford Focus Orange. The Outlaw Hot Rod Club presented the Service with a cheque for $900, the result of a swap meet run by the younger members of the club, which they hope to turn into an annual event. For the record, Steve’s daily drive is a 1958 F100, but he also owns a ’ 34 Ford three-window coupe and a ’ 66 Mustang. CSD has an ongoing partnership with the Service that stretches back many years. Service spokesman Mick Wilson said the support of the agricultural industry in general, and companies such as CSD in particular, is invaluable. ‘Farmers support the Service through donations of grain, cattle, sheep or wool when they can,’ Mr Wilson said. ‘T h is partnership and ongoing support of CSD and the growers it represents is making a difference to more than 550 people per year.’ CSD is the sole supplier of planting seed for the Australian cotton industry.

Participants made the most of the fancy dress theme and to quote the headline in the Northern Daily Leader, ‘Hippies and heroes chip in for chopper at Armidale’. The event was played in a four- person ambrose format and Armidale Golf Club General Manager Tim Allerton said the good field romped around the course in happy, hooking fashion. The Armidale Four Wheel Drive Club’s ‘Hole in Juan’ team drove away with the Best Dressed Award. One notable effort came from the Hippies. They made a direct donation to the Service. Sponsors included Moxon’s Bakery, FM100.3, 2AD, Walkley Golf, Armidale Golf Club, The Armidale Express, SuperMoto and Jackson Quality Meats. $3,000 was raised on the day.
