Northern NSW : Autumn 2011

Cheryl’s grandson Luke Malone, second from the right, is a member of the Service’s Hunter Rescue Club . He was transported by the Service from Scone to John Hunter Hospital as an infant. Luke’s mother Sharni is also pictured. After more than 58 years servicing the small community of Piallaway in the state’s New England North West region, the Piallaway Road Parents Cooperative Bus Society was forced into voluntary liquidation in 2009. The Co-Op which ensured children from the tiny community of Piallaway were delivered safely to Currabubula Public School each day, decided to disperse the remaining proceeds to a number of charities around the Tamworth region at the end of 2010. The Co-Op’s 23 remaining members voted to donate the remaining funds to several charities including the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service New England Nor th West which received a donation of more than $17,000. Artistic Support THE cream of Greater Port Macquarie’s arts community came together in January to raise funds for the Westpac Rescue helicopter Service. The group, which goes under the banner of the Hastings Art Trail, put on an exhibition and auction which they have never tried before and raised $2540. One of the biggest fundraisers at the event was a raffled painting that was generously donated by Julie Goldspink. Auctioneers Chris Perry (Westpac Business Banking) and Marc Minor (Sovereign Hills) did a fantastic job engaging the crowd and even State Member for Port Macquarie, Peter Besseling got in on the act by acting as a human easel and displaying the paintings to the crowd. Showing the results at the end of the art auction in Port Macquarie are (l to r) Gordon Wiegold (WRHS), Peta Simmons, Tanya Newman, Peter Besseling, Ivana Agapiou, Chris Perry, Marc Minor, John Carroll (kneeling), Helen Pain, May and William Turner.
