Northern NSW : Rescue Winter 2017
Gunnedah swings into action The Gunnedah Volunteer Support Group was on hand to ensure a charity fundraising event was a huge success. After a slight change in format, the Gunnedah Golf Day on 26 February attracted a field of 135 players. New major sponsor Wideland Ag, along with generous local businesses who sponsored holes, helped raise more than $12,000. The popular auction prizes included a Cypress Lakes golf package and a Rescue Helicopter esky. Enjoying the ride.

Organised by the Sandy Hollow Support Group, participants travelled from Sydney, Tamworth, Gunnedah and Moree to start the ride at 8am and return mid- afternoon. Thanks to the community’s support, along with generous sponsors Widden Stud, Godolphin Stud and Scone Equine Hospital, the event raised about $20,000. Miners from BHP’s Mount Arthur Coal and players from the BHP Hunter Valley Group 21 Rugby League competition have raised hundreds of dollars for the region’s Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service at the annual Voice for Mining Family Day in Newcastle. Around 20,000 Knights fans and Hunter mining families gathered at McDonald Jones Stadium to see the Knights in hi-vis against the Tigers and to celebrate all the good things mining brings to the region. The region’s miners are a major contributor to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service which is able to provide its service free of charge as a result of the contributions made by the community, government and corporate supporters, including BHP and the NSW Minerals Council. The NSW Minerals Council sponsored a highball challenge at half time, netting $400 for local Voice for Mining Day football clubs and $500 for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. “ M ining, Rugby League and organisations like the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service are integral to the Hunter community. That’s why we want to highlight the great work they do at half time on Voice for Mining Family Day,” NSW Minerals Council CEO, Stephen Galilee said today. Knights fans and mining families got to see one of the Service’s four new AW139 helicopters for the first time as it flew low over the stadium in a spectacular halftime display. 13 Rescue Magazine WINTER 2017
