Man gives cheque to rescuers
WHEN Dalby man Mark Harms got behind the wheel of his vehicle on the afternoon of January 4, the RACQ LifeFlight rescue crew would have been far from his thoughts.
However Mark required the support of the emergency services after his vehicle rolled on Newton Stephen Rd, and he was trapped.
Just three weeks after the incident, Mr Harms handed a cheque for $1335 to LifeFlight as a thank you for their help.
Dalby cafe Urban Paddock donated $1 from coffees sold over a week and collected donations for LifeFlight to go towards maintaining the organisation’s services.
Mr Harms said the gesture was the least he could do to support them.
“LifeFlight is huge out here and they are so important, so when the opportunity came to say thank you we took it,” Mr Harms said.
“They used the Rescue 500 chopper to take me to Brisbane and they were so professional.”
