Big Bluey helps to raise funds for rescue helicopter service

LOVABLE mascot Big Bluey, from Summerland Christian School, was on hand to help with fundraising for a very good cause.

The Goonellabah students held a 'Help Others' day and barbecue as part of the recent National Others Week (NOW) on Friday, November 6.

The school raised an amazing $1,230 for the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.

"What a great initiative and an outstanding effort by everyone at the school".Fundraising Manager with the rescue helicopters, Zeke Huish said.

"Our thanks go to all involved, particularly NOW co-ordinator Mrs McKee."
