Help chop­per with cal­en­dar

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS - ❏ Erica Mur­ree

THE 2013 Hot Farm­ers Cal­en­dar is prov­ing to be a top seller with all pro­ceeds sup­port­ing the AGL Res­cue Heli­copter.

On Mon­day at Biggen­den, AGL fundrais­ing man­ager Penny Creb­bin along with vol­un­teers Tanya Wal­ton and her mum Jeanette and ru­ral am­bas­sador Stephanie Old­ham at­tended their first ever cat­tle sale. And they loved it. Cen­tral and North Bur­nett Times me­dia sales man­ager Daniel Pelcl said the ladies had a good time talk­ing to the farm­ers and gra­ziers as well as sell­ing the cal­en­dars.

“The re­sponse was fan­tas­tic in re­gards to sales,” he said.

“The pro­ceeds are go­ing to a very wor­thy cause that is a must in our re­gion.”

Last year the AGL Res­cue Heli­copter proved to be an im­por­tant ser­vice to peo­ple of the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett, per­form­ing 143 flights or the equiv­a­lent of 194.5 fly­ing hours.

Res­cue teams are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and can fly di­rect to any­where within their pri­mary op­er­a­tional area within an hour.

They can land at the scene and trans­port pa­tients to the he­li­pad of the near­est ma­jor hospi­tal or spe­cial­ist unit in the frac­tion of the time taken by road am­bu­lance.

Cal­en­dars are avail­able at all Cen­tral and North Bur­nett Times of­fices as well as var­i­ous busi­nesses across the re­gion.

Spend $5 and you will be help­ing a worth­while cause.
