Northern NSW : Summer 2017
The annual Tamworth Prime Lamb Sale was held at the Regional Livestock Exchange in September in memory of auctioneer Jason Goodwin. The 2016 champion pen was awarded to Barton Partnership, ‘Dunreath’, for its export-weight (50+kg) lambs. In a remarkable display of generosity, Colin Barton donated the entire proceeds from the sale to the Rescue Helicopter with livestock agent Ian Morgan selling the pen of 20 lambs for $400/head. Other donations from the sale of lambs resulted in the Service receiving almost $10,000. Richard Bowler and Colin Barton at the JV Goodwin Memorial Shield lamb sale in Tamworth.

Even if the six teams did get a little damp, ventriloquist Darren Carr lifted spirits during the charity dinner, which attracted a crowd of 60 and raised $4,500. The Martin Group was again the naming sponsor thanks to the ongoing support from Gordon Martin. Westfund also came on board as a sponsor this year and thanks are extended to Nicole Hilliard. The hard work of Michael and Kristy Cleary should also be acknowledged. Michael was picked up by the Service in January 2012. The inaugural Newcastle Knights Race Day attracted 220 guests to the Newcastle Jockey Club on 19 November. The Rescue Helicopter was the sole beneficiary of the charity event that raised nearly $10,000 through auctions, a raffle and generous donations. The day was well supported by the Knights team and members with guests including CEO Matt Gidley, coach Nathan Brown and players Dane Gagai, Trent Hodkinson, Chanel Mata’utia and Jarrod Mullen. There were more smiles than aching feet across the Central Coast following the success of the inaugural Lighthouse 2 Skillion Coast Walk. Organised by James ‘Dog’ Musgrave and the Toowoon Bay Surf Club the 27.5km trek over sand, rock pools and pathways started from Norah Head lighthouse and finished at the skillion at Terrigal. An impressive $50,000 was raised by 2,069 registered participants with $10,000 donated each to the Rescue Helicopter and Coast Shelter and $30,000 shared between the many local surf clubs along the course.
