Since 1997 the Club has supported the Helicopter Rescue Service under its various names: Energex Community Rescue, AGL Action Rescue, RACQ CareFlight and now LifeFlight. In that time we have promoted the service to Community Organisations such as Rotary, Probus, Seniors, View Clubs and Retirement Villages. Powerpoint presentations are given to meetings and Hanger Tours by club Past President Dave Woodrow and we have raised over $300,000 by encouraging individuals and organisations to support this vital Community Service.
On Friday 4th August the club visited the Life Flight headquarters at Maroochy Airport. We thank the LifeFlight team for their hospitality and thoroughly enjoyed our visit, marvelling at the latest developments and chatting with the LifeFlight team.
If you study the gallery photo’s carefully you will spot a few things…Colleen trying out the pilots seat, also we welcomed several guests and delighted to see our honorary member Fiona Simpson MP join us …and not forgetting Dave W with an early birthday cake. Best wishes to Dave W on his birthday from all of us.
Thanks to Tony F for the photo’s.
