Help chopper with calendar
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.
