Northern NSW : Rescue Winter 2016
Fore a mate The Wests Social Golf Club held a memorial charity day for one of its members, Greg Mason, in February this year. Greg suffered a massive heart attack at Maitland Golf Course in July last year with paramedics and the Rescue Helicopter attending, but despite efforts he sadly passed away. According to Club Secretary Michael Pascoe and President Ron Moore, members of the group were so grateful for the attention and care provided they decided to hold a charity event and raise some money for the Service. Michael and Ron recently met with Richard Jones and Barry Walton at the Service to present a cheque for $1,000. A whale of a time About 40 friends and supporters raised $2,000 during the inaugural Mick ‘Whale’ Curry Cup bowls event held at Hamilton North Bowling Club. A popular mate and former player with the Hamilton Hawks Rugby Club, ‘Whale’ passed away after losing his battle with cancer. The ‘Pikeys’ team, which included Phil Pereira (Secretary Manager), Duncan Tait (member) and Allan Heath (President), took out the event and were presented with the perpetual cup by Mick’s widow, Kate. All vowed to return to defend their title. Leaders take giant leap A group of adventurous Central Coast business and community leaders abseiled Terrigal’s Crowne Plaza on 13 May. Twenty participants signed up and secured sponsorship for the ‘Leaders Leap’ charity event which helped raise $54,000 for the Rescue Helicopter. Parramatta Eels legend Brett Kenny and celebrity cook Julie Goodwin were among the intrepid group. The inaugural event was sponsored by Blue Mushroom and supported by a number of organisations including Blue Mushroom Events, Crowne Plaza Terrigal, Custom Trophies, Rees Digital and StarFM. Manilla Captain’s Ride A group of 41 riders took part in the Carlos IGA Captain’s Ride, which included an 87-kilometre trek on 10 April along back roads and private property from Carlos IGA in Callala to Carlos IGA Manilla. The day long challenge, backed up by a volunteer support crew and Dr Di Ford, allowed participants to experience a taste of the more gruelling upcoming seven day Alive and Well Ride for the Chopper commencing on 16 September.
