Members of the Clarence valley Life Saver Rescue Helicopter support group. A similar group is being launched in the Brunswick valley this week.

The Life Saver Rescue Helicopter is looking to launch a brand new Volunteer Support Group in the Brunswick valley.

An open meeting is being held on Thursday (August 20), at 5.30pm for a 6pm start, at the Brunswick Bowls Club, for anyone interested in registering to join the group.

Fundraising manager for the service, Zeke Huish said, ‘Volunteers are such a big part of our service and the time and support they provide through fundraising helps to keep our operations flying and saving lives.’

‘Volunteering is a great way to meet new friends and socialise and we encourage anyone looking to be a part of a community group to come long and become part of the team,’ he added.

For more information about becoming a volunteer, you can call the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter on 6627 4444.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
