Man gives cheque to res­cuers

Western Times - - BEST OF THE WEST -

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.”
