Once again, the members of the Sawtell Croquet Club have held a Charity fun Day to raise funds for the local Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

Often during play, members can see and hear the helicopter flying overhead to and from the Coffs Harbour Base Hospital.

This service covers the entire Mid and North coasts of NSW and provides care if needed to over two million people.

They receive 70 per cent of their funding from NSW Health and NSW Ambulance.

The balance is sourced from fundraising activities similar to the one recently held at the Sawtell Croquet Club.

Members were delighted to again be able to hold a Fun day on the October long weekend to raise $1000 in funds for the vital work of Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

A fine day ensured around forty players enjoyed a morning of playing either Ricochet or Golf Croquet, before partaking in a sausage sizzle and cool drinks.

A raffle was organised during the preceding week and a portion of all court fees were donated as well.

The club has supported the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service for many years and hopes to do so well into the future.
