Thank you to the Central West Tractor Trek for their amazing support of Little Wings
The Central West Tractor Trek has been running for 5 years and involves 20 teams of tractors driving through the Central West region to raise money for children suffering illness or disabilities. This year, the tractors travelled for two days on a 220km round trip starting in Orange then visiting the communities of Cargo, Cudal, Lake Canobolas, Forest Reefs, Millthorpe and then back to Orange.
Little Wings has been working closely with families in this region since 2012, having helped 40 families and completing nearly 400 flights to and from Western NSW. This year Central West Tractor Trek chose to support Little Wings, with all money raised by the tractor teams being donated to our charity.
The tractor teams all worked very hard to raise money for Little Wings with one team, ‘the ‘3 Molong Grannies’ raising most of their funds ($14,381) through the sale of homemade jam and cakes to the local community!
At the end of the two days the Trek was an outstanding success, raising $90,000 for Little Wings, which means we can now provide an additional 60 free flights for families in Regional NSW.
We would like to thank all the Tractor Trek teams for all of their incredible work. We would also like to thank the Garland family and the Ferguson family, families of our Little Wings service from Western NSW, who came along to show their support for this wonderful event.
