Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

THE Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice of Aus­tralia and Wool­worths are en­cour­ag­ing Dalby res­i­dents to help sup­port Queens­lan­ders in need across the state when they shop in the lead up to Hal­loween.

Hal­loween has be­come a popular oc­ca­sion and this year cus­tomers are in­vited to help other fam­i­lies when do­ing their shop­ping in the lead up to the day.

Lo­cal cus­tomers at Wool­worths Dalby can play their part by sim­ply adding a $1 Wool­worths Hal­loween fundrais­ing to­ken to their shop un­til Oc­to­ber 31.

All funds raised will help the good work of the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice.

The Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice is one of the largest and most com­pre­hen­sive aeromed­i­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions in the world, pro­vid­ing ex­ten­sive pri­mary health care and 24-hour emer­gency ser­vice to peo­ple over an area of 7.3 mil­lion square kilo­me­tres.

Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice (Queens­land Sec­tion) CEO Mered­ith Staib said the or­gan­i­sa­tion ap­pre­ci­ated Wool­worths’ sup­port.

“Funds raised across this Hal­loween cam­paign will al­low us to pur­chase vi­tal med­i­cal equip­ment, which will help us deliver even greater health out­comes for peo­ple in re­gional, ru­ral and re­mote Queens­land,” she said.

Wool­worths Dalby store man­ager Christo­pher Walker said the store was al­ways over­whelmed by the gen­eros­ity of its lo­cal cus­tomers.
