Another successful RFDS fundraiser

This year's trek goes cross-country.

Wolf Creek was one of the stops for intrepid fundraisers Rob Callevar, Pete Smith, Paddy Handbury and Greg Smith.


Once again, local participants in the Royal Flying Doctors Service’s Outback Trek have managed to raise in excess of $20000.

The 12-day event saw Team 15 — consisting of Paddy and Jack Handbury and Greg Smith — travel from Alice Springs to Margaret River in Western Australia, via Broome.

The money raised by the local trio helped the RFDS reach a total of $1.4million in its 25th anniversary year, taking the total amount raised to $22million.

The success of the local fundraising could not have been possible without the generous sponsorship from Catriona and Eliot Jarman, Deb and David Lawrence, Australian Wool Network, Neil Beer Holden, Seymour CRT store and several private donors.

The RFDS uses the much needed proceeds from this event to fund capital equipment purchases and the TOOTH program.
