Since 2002 people from TOLL across the Hunter, Central Coast, Mid Nor th Coast, New England and North West regions have been contributing a few dollars through their payroll each week. Service General Manager, Richard Jones, said that the support of organisations like TOLL was invaluable and greatly appreciated. “Many people find that donating a few dollars each week from their pay is a convenient tax-deductible way of helping to make sure that the community has a dedicated and locally managed aeromedical retrieval service,” Mr Jones said. “The generosity and support of TOLL employees is most valued,” he said. TOLL has been one of the major supporters of the annual Miners and Suppliers Charity Bowls Day in Gunnedah. The event this year raised $24,000, taking total donations over its five year histor y to more than $100,000.
