Northern NSW : Rescue Spring 2017
Molafos base visit As part of their Drover’s Run sponsorship, and ongoing agricultural partnership with the Service, a group of Molafos Management and Distributor executives and staff attended the Tamworth Base in July for a tour and a chance to inspect the new AW139. A spokesperson said the company was extremely proud to be part of the Drover’s Run Outback Adventure fundraising event and was impressed to see first-hand the passion and dedication of the Service during their base visit. Lismore Golf Day The annual Motor Traders Golf Day was played in windy conditions at Lismore Workers Golf Club on 18 August with more than 100 golfers and “hackers” enjoying the day. The event raised more than $4,000 with local Community Liaison Officer John Bancroft on hand to man the “Chopper Chipping Challenge” hole.

Rugged up, the keen mountain bike group set out to Warrabah National Park, near Manilla, and back, raising $1,400. The team followed and crossed the Namoi River and tested out their legs on some big climbs, before tucking into a delicious fireside lunch prepared by the dedicated support crew. The popular event allows for all abilities of riders to get a taste of what’s involved in the Annual September Ride for the Chopper. The next Carlo’s IGA Captain’s Ride will be staged at Walcha in October as part of the Walcha Mountain Festival.

In appreciation, conducted base tours provide a great opportunity for local organisations to meet and talk with staff and crew, and gain a greater understanding of the important work carried out both on the ground and in the air. Charlestown Rotary Club has been a regular fundraiser and recently visited the Belmont base. 9 Rescue Magazine SPRING 2017
