Northern NSW : Autumn 2011
In early December the Hunter Thoroughbred Breeders Association presented a cheque for $5,000 to Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service’s Community Liaison Officer Kieron O’Toole. The Hunter Thoroughbred Breeders Association in conjunction with the Hunter Valley Equine Research Centre recently held a Middle Management Seminar for staff within the thoroughbred breeding industry. Many of the seminar speakers chose to donate their speaking fee to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and the HTBA chose to match this donation bringing the total value of the donation to $5,000. Contributors were as follows: Hunter Thoroughbred Breeders Association Dr John Chopin – Resident Vet Coolmore Australia Dr Allan Gunn – Veterinary Director, The Barn Veterinary Services Dr Joan Carrick – Veterinary Specialist, Scone Equine Hospital Dr Kristen Todhunter - Veterinarian Dr Jim Rodger – Senior Veterinarian, Jerrys Plains Veterinary Clinic Dr Troy Butt – Veterinarian, Scone Equine Hospital Dr Chris O’Sullivan – Veterinarian, Randwick Equine Centre John Maxwell and Ross Lindeman - Alpha Horse Members of the newly formed Scone Volunteer Support group are excited and ready to kick-start their fundraising for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. The group, which is already 24 members strong, formed in August 2010 and will commence their fundraising by promoting the Big Backyard Raffle. The group also plans to attend the Upper Hunter Horse Festival in May and support the “Tag A Calf” program. Scone’s Publicity Officer, Cindy Pinkerton said the group was looking forward to connecting with the community this year. “ We welcome any fundraising ideas and we would be more than happy to help anyone with ideas. All members are very keen and eager to see the group take off,” she said. The Scone Volunteer Support group meets each month at the Upper Hunter Shire Council Chambers.
