Northern NSW : Summer 2017
Race time Cup fever and fashion were on show during the Melbourne Cup Lunch at Terrigal’s Splash Restaurant on 1 November. Roses 2 Go provided stunning table decorations for 67 guests who made the most of the race day spirit and activities along with supporting the silent auction and many raffles which helped raise more than $3,000. Fashionable guests enjoying good food and company This year’s Ride for the Chopper covered 400km in just a few days of cycling in the week 16- 23 September over some tough terrain between Dubbo and Tamworth. The original course was for 650-odd kilometres over six days, but heavy rain causing some flooding negated any chance of the Dubbo-Gilgandra and Baradine- Coonabarabran legs. McWhirters Bus Lines in Coonabarabran kindly came to the fore and transported the riders to Siding Spring Observatory. This was the 16th annual ride in aid of the Service and 52 riders and 13 support crew braved the elements, when not in a bus, on a route through Gilgandra, Tooraweenah, Baradine, Coonabarabran and Gunnedah. An impressive $84,000 was raised and the event was nominated as a finalist in the 2016 NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards. Sponsors included Alive and Well, Pirtek, Carlo’s IGA, Calala Inn, Jackson’s Restorations, Namoi Sustainable Energy, Orica, ATAC, and Happy Smiles.Read the full story on the WRHS website.

This was the second fund-raising event for the Service held in the Mudgee region following the dinner in June with former Australian rugby league captain Darren Lockyer. The golf day was also followed by a dinner, with poet and author Murray Hartin entertaining the crowd. HIC Services was the naming sponsor with supporting partners including WesTrac, JC Constructions and P&A Engineering along with many generous hole sponsors. Fine field (L-R) Rest time for Service CEO Richard Jones with event organiser Mark Hale and poet Murray Hartin Members of the Men’s Shed Mudgee were hard at work during the Mudgee Golf day serving up the traditional BBQ breakfast to players. The organisation then generously donated $1,000 from the money raised to the Rescue Helicopter. The Service’s Community Liaison Officer Rochelle McDonald was presented with the proceeds during a special morning tea and, in a first for the 80-strong club’s history, was given honorary membership. In return, Rochelle presented a special framed photograph of the Rescue Helicopter to the group.
