Chopper charity at golf club

PREPARATIONS have begun at the Coolangatta-Tweed Heads Golf Club ahead of the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Corporate Charity Golf Day on Friday.

Northern Region rescue helicopter fundraising manager Zeke Huish said anticipation was building in the Lismore office.

“We haven’t done a golf day in a long time.” Mr Huish said.

“The prospect of things coming together on Friday is fantastic.

“We have a team of pilots; that should be pretty entertaining.

“People can come along and speak to the pilots and crew and find out a bit more about what we do.”

Golf and functions manager Michelle Paine said it would be all hands on deck on Friday.

“The pro shop staff will definitely be on the scene on the day,” she said.

All proceeds will go towards the general running of the rescue helicopter service to help keep the chopper in the air.

Competitors will be a mix of amateur and professional golfers playing an 18-hole four-person ambrose competition.

Coolangatta-Tweed Heads Golf Club staff hope to raise $10,000.

To enter call (02) 6627 4444 by tomorrow afternoon.
