Northern NSW : Rescue Spring 2016
4WD care Arriving with a collective message of appreciation, members of the Tamworth 4WD Club turned out in force to look over the Rescue Helicopter’s local base. Proceeds raised from the the club’s Drover’s Run event totalling nearly $900 were presented to the Service during the 12 July club meeting. The club says given its off-road activities, members are well aware of the assistance they could one day need from the Service and the ongoing association is a perfect alignment. Wyong Race Club helped to host another successful event during the annual Central Coast Charity Race Day on 5 August. Despite the dreary weather, a colourfully decorated room helped 184 punters raise more than $12,000. Priority Business Lawyers led the strong sponsor field of Insurance House, BJ Howes, Wideline Windows and Doors, Hog’s Breath Cafe, Advance Design, Club Toukley RSL and Farrar Legal for the eight race meeting. Six lucky guests won a special barrier tour and experienced the jostling of the start of the race. A good bet Mudgee’s maroon boost Rugby league great Darren Lockyer was the special guest at a fundraising dinner at Mudgee Golf Club on 14 June. An “Evening with Darren Lockyer”, along with the auction of Australian and Queensland State of Origin jumpers, helped raise nearly $7,000 for the Service. Earlier in the day the former Broncos, Maroons and Kangaroos skipper visited some mine sites as part of his role as an ambassador with One Key Resources. Former Knights, Broncos, Eels, Storm and Warriors player Todd Lowrie then joined Lockyer at an informal juniors’ clinic in the afternoon at Cahill Park.

The riders toured the 75 kilometre trek through the New England region before returning to Calala’s IGA. Volunteers in the support crew were challenged when preparing the course after recent flooding washed out some roads. Raising $2,500 the annual event also served as an important warmup for the Dubbo Captain’s Ride, giving riders the opportunity to build their endurance.
