Charity Bowls Day to support Westpac Rescue Helicopter Fundraising

THE Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service (WRHS) Port Stephens Support Group in conjunction with Soldiers Point Bowling Club were proud to host a Charity Bowls Day recently.

Carla Beer, one of the volunteers that fundraises for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter in our region, told News Of The Area, “We encouraged all to come along, bringing their friends and family for a day that was filled with fun, laughter, prizes, raffles, lawn bowls of course, and a BBQ lunch with dessert that was donated by Soldiers Point Bowling Club.

“What a fantastic day we all had and our thanks to all the players, our volunteers, staff and Soldiers Point Bowling Club’s management, Mark Watt in particular, and thanks to WRHS’ Richard McGovern for making the trip down from Port Macquarie to join us,” she said.

All the funds that were raised from this wonderful event are in direct support of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

“Given our very busy time lately by our Service, showing us just how this service is so vital to our region, and it is only with the generous support of our wonderful community and sponsors, that we can contribute to make this happen.”

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter is a vital piece of the puzzle that delivers quality care to residents in our region when they need it most.

The volunteers would like to thank the community very much for their ongoing support.
