Northern NSW : Rescue Aut 2016
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter is fortunate to have people in the community who dedicate their time, energy and resources to support the Service. There are currently 35 Volunteer Support Groups with more than 750 members who are spread across the region. These people are tireless workers who add great value to our fundraising and awareness of our activities. Volunteers at work Baby love More than a dozen hard working volunteers were on duty during the Help Us Save Babies Charity Golf Day held at Hunter Valley Golf & Country Club on 4 March. Volunteers manned course holes and drink stations to support 148 players who turned out to tee off in the annual tournament. Nearby Crowne Plaza hosted the presentation lunch with the event raising $22,500 for the Service and the John Hunter Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which provides intensive and special care to premature babies and sick newborns. Special thanks goes to Nadine Leighton, Steve Dewey, John Pattison, Craig Kennedy, Scott Fairbairn, Barrie Newton, Andrew Davidson and Kris Wall for all their efforts to make the event such a success. Mudgee volunteers wanted Efforts are continuing to build a new Volunteer Support Group at Mudgee in the state’s Central West. These groups assist the Service by helping to organise events and raise funds across the Hunter, Central Coast, Mid North Coast, New England and North West, and now Central West. Anyone who is interested in becoming a volunteer in the Central West region can contact the Service’s Kim Blanch on 6764 9400. Picturesque Mudgee Small change counts Volunteers on the Central Coast are doing a great job in finding local businesses who are happy to display Rescue Helicopter money tins on their counters to help collect spare change from customers. Last year more than $14,000 was raised which is a great example of how every dollar – and coin – can really make a difference. The Dan Murphy’s team at Erina Baby, what a swing!
