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 ARE 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 Michael Wilson 0415 452 263 New England North West Rochelle McDonald 0413 558 973 Mudgee Shannon O’Hagan 0438 449 444 Central Coast Steely approach Forged steel grinding balls and rods producer Moly-Cop has been a long-time supporter of the Rescue Helicopter through its Workplace Giving program. Service Community Liaison Officer Barry Walton recently delivered a presentation to the Waratah-based employees, outlining how and where their contributions are spent. Moly-Cop had 177 employees donating from their pay each fortnight, totalling $39,000 per year. Since Mr Walton’s visit a further 68 people have also signed up, bringing the total number of Moly-Cop employees contributing to 245, which is almost a 50% participation rate, and they are now providing nearly $50,000 per year. Mr Walton recently returned to personally thank some of the employees and over morning tea a couple of them revealed their first- hand experiences with the Service. One is a member of a surf life-saving club and has witnessed first-hand the great work of the Service. Another Moly-Cop employee had been involved in a very serious motor vehicle accident and could not speak highly enough of the efforts of the rescue team in attendance, praising the actions of the pilot who took the time to visit him in hospital following his accident. Community Liaison Officer Barry Walton with some of the crew from Moly-Cop 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.
