Dear [FIRST_NAME]

During May we attended the 2015 Clubs and Community Awards where Bankstown Sports Club and South Lismore Bowling Club were awarded Outstanding Regional Initiative for their support of Little Wings. South Lismore Bowling Club has helped raise some much needed funds for Little Wings and Bankstown Sports Club have donated over $25,000, accomodation for children and their families, hosted cash housie sessions and helped us out in so many other ways. A very big congratulations and thank you to the Clubs for their continued support.

On the 27th of April, our Ride for Flight started at Nambucca Heads and ended in Tweed Heads travelling over 350km over the 3 days. We raised over $90,000 in total including support from local clubs in the Tweed region (Tweed Heads Bowls Club, Kingscliff Bowls Club, the Seagulls Club and South Tweed Sports Club). We would like to thank the Clubs and businesses who supported us along the way, those who attended the end of ride dinner, the official ride sponsors (Tweed Heads Bowls Club, Ultimate Safety Supplies, Oliver’s Real Food, Highland Cycles Grafton, Bulk Nutrients, and Gloryfy Eyewear) and we can’t forget the fantastic support crew Greig, Kevin, Caroline, Maree, Alecia, and Mel and the riders Aaron, Craig, Bryon, Elijah, Alex and Matt.      

If you are interested in supporting Little Wings or hosting an event where proceeds go to the charity please email info@littlewings.org.au. Once again we thank you for your continued support.

Regards, Little Wings Team

Our Children's Story - Chloe

Chloe is 13 years old and is from Dubbo and she is an absolute delight to have on our flights. Chloe needs to make regular trips to Sydney for treatment.

With her 5 other brothers and sisters at home it’s difficult for mum or dad to be away and do the long drive to Sydney. Little Wings gets Chloe and dad here quickly and safely and back home in no time which makes an enormous difference and allows her to be at home and go to school which she loves.

Tabcare Donation

Tabcare held a Charity Golf Day at Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club on Friday 22 May 2015. Even with the constant rain on the day the event still went ahead. Little Wings would like to thank Tabcare for their very generous donation of $50,000.

This money will make a significant impact on the flight program and will allow more people to access this service that would otherwise not have been able to.
