Rescue chopper says thanks to council depot staff
THE Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter recently met with some of the hard working team from the Clarence Valley Council at their Townsend depot.
Staff across the Council have been contributing for over 25 years to the rescue helicopter service by way of their payroll deductions each pay.
Their efforts have helped to raise over $150,000 during this time which have helped to keep the rescue helicopters flying and saving lives across the region.
Spokesperson for the rescue helicopters Zeke Huish said: "It takes a lot of people to help us raise over 60% of our $7m annual operating budget each year and our thanks goes to everyone at the council for supporting us in the way they do".
The rescue helicopter service is free of charge to the community and its donation support that helps the Service to fly between six to seven missions each week.
