Northern NSW : Rescue Spring 2017
Volunteers at work The Westpac Rescue Helicopter is fortunate to have people in the community who dedicate their time, energy and resources to support the Service. 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. Taree support After a year of dedicated fundraising efforts, the Taree Volunteer Support Group recently presented a $26,000 donation to the Service. The donation included support from the Rotary Club of Taree and Wingham Beef Week. Money raised was collected through bucket collections, barbecues, raffles and other programs. The Service’s Regional Marketing Manager Chad Griffith with Taree volunteers Allan Reeves, Betty Mayers, Rodney Cribbin and Audrey Reeves. Players toast a great fundraising night Cocktail Blingo Inspired by the recent black-tie bingo trend, the Coonabarabran Volunteer Support Group held their first “Cocktail Blingo” evening at the local golf club on 15 July raising more than $2,500. Organisers say they received great support from the local community, with more than 100 players settling in for an evening of classic bingo, house-made cocktails and enthusiastic DJ entertainment. The event’s fashion judges awarded “Best Tie” to Howard Rodan and “Best Scarf” to Edna Mack while volunteer, Jeanette Capewell was highly praised for her blingo calling talent.
