Northern NSW : Rescue Winter 2016
Workplace Giving DID YOU KNOW THAT DONATING JUST A FEW DOLLARS FROM YOUR PAY EACH WEEK ENSURES THAT NO ONE WILL EVER PAY TO BE ASSISTED BY THE WESTPAC RESCUE HELICOPTER SERVICE? WORKPLACE GIVING PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN AN IMPORTANT AND VALUED WAY THAT OUR COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTES. WELL KNOWN AND CHAMPIONED BY OUR MATES IN MINING AND UNIONS, PAYROLL CONTRIBUTIONS OF JUST A COUPLE OF DOLLARS EACH WEEK ARE MADE BY PEOPLE WORKING IN LOCAL COUNCILS, HEALTH, MEDIA, MANUFACTURING, BUSINESS SERVICES AND SMALL BUSINESS, TO NAME JUST A FEW. Meet our Community Liaison Officers Barry Walton | 0428 846 720 Hunter Region Adam Tyrrell | 0477 225 573 Hunter Region Michael Wilson | 0415 452 263 New England North West Always caring Scone’s non-profit aged-care facility Strathearn Village has been involved with the Service’s Workplace Giving program for well over a decade. Systems, Quality and Education Co-ordinator at Strathearn, Anne Ferries, said that involvement with the Rescue Helicopter stretched back to at least to 2003. Ms Ferries said donating to the Service was considered the normal and right thing to do. ‘A lthough we are a small town, we are a real community in Scone,’ she said. ‘Everyone knows someone who has been assisted by the Rescue Helicopter in one way or another. We all value the importance of the Service.’ Hunter Region Community Liaison Officer Adam Tyrrell makes regular visits to the village and Ms Ferries said his presentations are always well received by staff. How to get involved Signing up to the Service’s Workplace Giving program means that each time you’re paid by your employer a nominated amount is automatically made as a tax-deductible donation to the Service. To get involved in this program the first step is to contact a Community Liaison Officer (CLO) in your region. 1. Your CLO will come out and speak with your employees about the program. 2. An employee signs up to the program by completing a simple form and nominating the regular payroll deduction amount. 3. The form goes to the payroll department where the nominated amount is deducted from the employee’s weekly, fortnightly or montly pay. 4.Attheendofthe financial year, employees are able to claim a tax deduction for the total amount donated.
