Narrogin Observer - - Observer News - Laura Gru­bisa

Ann McLeish, a vol­un­teer for the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice, has re­ceived more than $6500 in do­na­tions in the last month.

Among them, $200 was col­lected by Robin New­man dur­ing the Spring Fes­ti­val, $1500 came from Cor­ri­gin Ro­tary Club, and a $5000 do­na­tion was handed over from the Nar­ro­gin De­pen­dent Per­sons’ Bus.

Ms New­man raised her $200 by host­ing a morn­ing tea dur­ing the re­cent Spring Fes­ti­val, and the De­pen­dent Per­sons’ Bus raised their $5000 from wind-up funds.

The Cor­ri­gin Ro­tary Club held a Va­ri­ety Af­ter­noon in Au­gust and pres­i­dent Julian Goldacre pre­sented Ms McLeish with a $1500 cheque.

Ms McLeish has raised more than $150,000 for the RFDS since she started col­lect­ing in 2008 through walks to Al­bany and Perth, shak­ing tins at ma­jor events, and by vis­it­ing schools.
