There are currently 37 Volunteer Support Groups with more than 1000 members who are spread across the region. These people are tireless workers who add great value to the fundraising and awareness of our activities. Go for Gold Festival They may be few in number, but the Nundle/Hanging Rock Volunteer Support Group was out in force to raise funds during the annual Go for Gold Festival held at Nundle over the Easter long weekend. It’s estimated more than 16,000 people attended the popular weekend attraction with volunteers holding raffles, guessing competitions and hosting a ‘Land the Chopper’ Game, all helping to collect donations and raise awareness. Spring Plains Long Lunch It was a fundraising event with a difference for the community of Spring Plain near Wee Waa. Instead of holding its usual fundraising event, the Spring Plain Ball Committee decided to organise a Tuscan Long Lunch. Guests enjoyed wonderful food and wine and with the help of supporting local organisations, raised $30,000. Special guest on the day was retiring Service chairman, Cliff Marsh, who was given a standing ovation in recognition of his 40-year contribution to the Rescue Helicopter. The Armidale Volunteer Support Group held a fantastic High Tea fundraiser at Armidale Bowling Club, which raised $3,000 . All smiles for hard working volunteers Cliff Marsh with Wee Waa Support Group Chair Sharon Grellman 12 Rescue Magazine WINTER 2017
