Northern NSW : Rescue Spring 2016
Base tour A group of GrainCorp staff from across the Northern NSW grain growing region was able to get a first- hand look at how the Service operates when they visited the Tamworth base for a tour on 5 August. For the past 16 years Graincorp has been assisting growers, when selling or delivering grain, to donate at the silo (pre or post-harvest) by using the Rescue Helicopter NGR number. GrainCorp’s Commodity Manager Nathan Eather said it was surprising how small donations added up over the years with a collective total now at $248,678. Miners’ lantern shines It was a battle between the best of the best during the 8th Annual Gunnedah Mining & Suppliers Charity Bowls Day on 7 August. With the help of the Gunnedah Volunteer Support Group, 18 teams took on the challenge at the Gunnedah Services and Bowling Club to see which company delivered the best bowlers. The day was supported by Whitehaven Coal, Idemitsu Boggabri Coal, Pacific National, ORICA, BIS Industries, United Mine Workers, Narrabri Lodge, CALTEX, Gunnedah Services and Bowling Club, Pirtek, HIC Services, GBP Cranes and the Onsite Rental Group. Following tightly contested semi-finals, HIC Services secured the Miners’ Lantern Trophy over BIS Industries 1 in a memorable final. High Tea time Harleys for Humanity High Tea on the Green at Magenta Shores attracted 150 tea lovers on a stormy Sunday in early June. They gathered to enjoy an afternoon of delicious delicacies, clairvoyants, fashion, fragrances, raffles and of course spending time with family, friends and colleagues to raise almost $7,000 for the Service. Helping to make the day a success was major sponsor Sure Eye Care with Pullman Hotels and Resorts, Westfield Tuggerah, Star 104.5, Roses2Go and Picasso Media. Long serving event sponsors Nicky Mann (Roses2Go) and Amanda Rungis (Sure Eye Care) Harley enthusiasts have been long term supporters of the Service. Previously known as Harley 4 Helicopters the revamped Harleys for Humanity recently donated $3,500 to the Rescue Helicopter with proceeds raised from charity rides. The next fundraising event will be the ‘Turkey Run’ from Newcastle to Uralla, then on to Port Macquarie during 4-6 November. About 70% of all money collected will go to the Service with the remainder to be distributed to other Hunter-based charities.
