Northern NSW : Autumn 2011
City acknowledgement for Newcastle Volunteers The hard work and efforts of the Newcastle Volunteer Support Group were recognised in an extraordinary meeting in Council Chambers in November. The group received the Newcastle City Community Award for 2010 for their contribution to the community through their fundraising efforts. The award was accepted by Gloria Winsor, Chairperson for the group, who received a special mention on the award. The Newcastle group has been working together since 2001 and has presented more than $560,000 to the Service. The group is kept extremely busy taking care of regular visits to the base by community groups, numerous BBQs for local business and assisting with the Service’s major events. In 2010 the group managed to raise more than $100,000. The award has been hung proudly in the Visitor’s Centre at the Service’s Broadmeadow base for the facility’s many guests to see. Newcastle City Council acting General Manager Judy Jaeger, Newcastle Volunteer Support Group Chairperson Gloria Winsor, Newcastle City Lord Mayor John Tate and Lady Mayoress Cathy Tate. To our mates at the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, no-one ever thinks that they will need to call upon your wonderful services. Most people regard the WRHS as an integral part of our community and thistimwe it has reached out and touched us. To you Richard, Phil, Kieron, Judy, Ian (Ozzy) and the rest of your wonderful team, a heartfelt thank you from the entire Brydson clan. We will be up to thank you personally in the very near future. Our son, Adam, recently suffered a severe crush injury to his right hand and was transported by the Service. He has movement in all fingers with six to ten broken / crushed bones and underwent microsurgery at Lingard Private Hospital and the prognosis was good. The team at John Hunter have also been absolutely top notch. Once again, our sincere thank you to everyone. Love / kind regards, Leigh and Heidi Brydson Bill and Marie Fogarty and family would like to thank the staff of Tamworth Hospital, Emergency Services and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. Due to your dedication, professionalism and attention to detail our son William was transported to John Hunter Hospital on Sunday September 26, 2010 and was put into the care of an amazing surgical team. After being brutally assaulted to the head we had prepared ourselves for the worst. We can advise that William did not die and doctors have said that he is a walking miracle.
