Northern NSW : Rescue Winter 2017
Sub rescue Subway restaurants throughout Northern NSW helped raised $23,500 for the Service during the first ever Rescue Sub Week held 17-23 April. Through the promotion the company made a donation from every ‘Chicken Classic Combo’ sold, and also gave one lucky person the chance to enter a draw to win the ‘ Ultimate Rescue Helicopter Experience’. Emily Dingle from Kotara won a flight simulator experience, a VIP base visit and a flight in a helicopter. Rugby legacy The Service is honoured to be a beneficiary of the Memorial Toothy’s Tens Rugby Tournament held in Quirindi last October. The event was in memory of Nick Tooth, a Quirindi Lions player who tragically passed away in April 2015 after sustaining a head knock during a Central North Rugby game. Nick was transported by the Rescue Helicopter from Quirindi to John Hunter Hospital. In its second year, the tournament attracted 16 teams and more than 1,000 spectators. The Tooth Family donated $25,000 to the Service and also supported the Ian Tucker Foundation for sports-related brain injuries. Top weekend Some of the state’s most beautiful northern countryside was explored during the Tamworth to the Tops Mystery 4WD Adventure. The annual family weekend on 6-7 May was enjoyed by about 25 participants who ventured out from Tamworth and travelled to the Enfield State Forest around Walcha, Wingham and Nowendoc.The adventure raised about $3,000 thanks to the ongoing support of sponsors Leicht’s Tyre and Auto, Ironman 4X4, and Doug Stewart who helped map the event.
