Northern NSW : Rescue Winter 2016
Donate a lamb Highway Ford teams up with Maitland volunteers A total of 31 sheep and lambs were provided by 24 vendors from the Glen Innes area during the inaugural ‘Donate a Lamb’ sale held at the Glen Innes Saleyards on 12 April. With the top lambs selling for about $310 a total of nearly $6,000 was raised for the Service. Organised by the Glen Innes Volunteer Support Group the event was held with the assistance of the Glen Innes Agents Association with special thanks to Newberry TeVeldeCarige Agencies, Landmark, Colin Say and Co and Elders. When Highway Ford began its ‘Mates in Action’ program in 2007 it hoped to contribute a few dollars to a handful of worthy local charities. This year the dealership team along with the Service’s Maitland Volunteer Support Group marked the contribution of a collective $100,000 to the Service during a special celebratory function at the Broadmeadow Base in May. The ‘Mates in Action’ fundraising initiative involves Highway Ford customers who purchase a new or used motor vehicle choosing a local charity to support. The Rescue Helicopter is a popular pick among 20 recipient organisations. Something old... Narrabri’s Volunteer Support Group worked hard on April Fool’s Day getting ready for the Antiques & Collectables weekend of 2 and 3 April. The main pavilion was filled with traders and exhibitors while a smaller pavilion held a huge model train display and transport memorabilia. A steady crowd of people came through the gates over the weekend with plans well underway for the 2017 event. The Sandy Hollow Volunteer Support Group celebrated its 21st charity Horse Ride by presenting the Service with a significant donation of $25,000. In April, 182 riders took part in the 27-kilometre scenic and challenging trek through Sandy Hollow Valley, which is carved out of the mountains by the Goulburn River, Halls Creek and Giant Creek. The traditional pre-event barbecue, raffles and registration took place at long-time sponsor the Tourist Hotel. Other sponsors included Godolphin, Coolmore Stud and Widden Stud.
