Northern NSW : Winter 2012 redo
30 year partnership extended The NSW Minerals industry has extended its long term support of the Rescue Helicopter and announced support for the next three years. NSW Minerals Council has been supporting the Service for more than 30 years and became a logo right sponsor in 2000. A number of the Council's members are also supporters and sponsors of the Service with thousands of the State's miners contributing to the Service through their wages each week. The coal industry contributed $1 million to fit-out the fourth helicopter. NSW Minerals Council CEO, Stephen Galilee, said that the minerals sector had a long history of supporting community services. 'This long-lasting partnership has stood the test of time because the Rescue Helicopter is so valued by the whole community,' he said. Other initiatives supported by NSW Minerals Council as part of its community program include the SES, the RFS, mental health and men's health programs, victims of domestic violence, indigenous employment, the arts and junior sports. Full steam ahead Big and little kids alike enjoyed a day dedicated to the smallest of trains. The Tamworth Volunteer Support Group joined forces with the Tamworth Miniature Train Club to hold a family day at the Botanical Gardens in Tamworth in March. More than 600 people attended the event which raised $1,900. NSW Minerals Council used Crew Chief, Peter Cummings, in a photo shoot as part of its awareness campaign. Big kids and little kids all enjoyed the miniature trains at the family fun day. Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service - Rescue Winter 2012 Page 9
