Monday 29th February 2016

Dear [FIRST_NAME]

Happy New Year to all, and what a start to the year it has been! Earlier this year we finalised our 5 year strategic plan and are now in the process of sharing our plan with our corporate sponsors and partners. We have big aspirations and want to continue to help as many families from regional NSW as we can, reaching our vision of ensuring that every child has easy and rapid access to specialist medical facilities. We look forward to achieving this goal with your support.

Operationally we have the sad news of the recent departure of our full time pilot Sammi Booth. Many of the families that have used the Little Wings service will know Sammi well. She will be sorely missed by the families and has been a great asset to the team. We wish her all the best in her future endeavours.

With one of our aircraft in maintenance over the past few weeks, it has been a real juggling act to manage the demand of the flight schedule with limited aircraft and pilot availability. The good news is that we now have both planes back up and running, and have recently recruited a Chief Pilot and Operations Manager Adam Holt. Adam joins Little Wings with extensive aviation experience and we welcome him to the team.

Other exciting news on the fundraising front, has been the commencement of five new Cash Housie sessions across NSW this year. Sessions have commenced at Walgett, Soldiers Point and Orange. Thank you to those Clubs and communities for your support in fundraising on behalf of Little Wings.  

Regards, Richelle Koller, Managing Director

 

Upcoming Events

1st April - Little Wings Charity Golf Day. Don’t be a jester this April Fools Day! Support Little Wings by joining us for a fun day of golf at Penrith Golf Club. Entry fee is $70 per person and includes a light breakfast before tee off, 18 holes of golf in a 4 ball Ambrose, and a buffet lunch back at the clubhouse. It is sure to be a great day out, with lots of fantastic prizes. Click on the link below or contact us to register as a player. We also have some great corporate sponsorship opportunities available. So if you are a business who wants to support a great cause, or looking for a fun day out for the team, check out our corporate sponsorship packages.

14th August - Team Little Wings at City2Surf. Whether you are a serious runner or a family looking for a fun day out why not consider joining the Little Wings City to Surf team raising funds and awareness for Little Wings. You will have an amazing feeling of accomplishment knowing that you have completed a 14km event, whilst making a difference to the lives of numerous families from regional NSW. Last year there were 9 Little Wings fundraisers and we are planning to make 2016 even bigger and better. An everydayhero page has been set up, click on the link below to find out more.

Running a fundraiser can be great fun, and there are many great ideas. Fun runs, car rallies, motorcycle days, mountain bike rides, holding a high tea for your girlfriends, a cricket match with your local club, or a gala dinner with your local town. Little Wings would love to work with you in 2016 to help and support your event and make it a success.


 


January and February Review

We have seen some fantastic organisations and individuals from the community holding fundraising events on behalf of Little Wings. 

The girls from Brigidine College St Ives have chosen Little Wings as their charity partner this year. We were very excited to be a part of your launch, and look forward to working with them throughout the year.

Peter Genellos from Rotary Club St Marys, competing for the 29th time in the annual Bridge to Bridge Swim at the Sydney International Regatta Centre. Thanks Peter for your support.

Revesby Wine Appreciation Club for inviting us to their annual fundraising meeting and dinner. Everyone was having a good time playing games that had been organised - our favourite being a paper plane competition.

Bankstown District Masonic Centre for their generous donation of $10,000 towards the Little Wings flight program. We appreciate your financial contribution and also thank the members of the Masonic Centre who generously provide their time in volunteering as drivers for Little Wings.

Finally as a Community Partner of Clubs NSW we would like to acknowledge Manilla RSL Club, Gunnedah Ex-Services Club, Gilgandra Ex-Services and Stockton RSL for their fundraisers and donations in support of Little Wings.



Little Wings City2Surf Team

Last year we had 9 participants compete in the City2Surf and raise over $8,000 for Little Wings. This year we are aiming to make it even bigger!

Sunday 14th August is the date to keep in your diary. If you already compete or are thinking of competing please register yourself on the City2Surf webpage and then visit the link below to get your fundraising page started.

Entertainment Book Fundraiser

Have you purchased the Entertainment Book before? The Entertainment membership contains thousands of valuable offers for you and your family (up to 50% off and 2-for-1).

Little Wings is delighted to be fundraising with the Entertainment Book again in 2016. 20% of every membership sold is given back to Little Wings. Please share this with your friends and family and pre-order your copy using the link below.

Cash Housie Sessions

Weekly we run over 20 sessions of Cash Housie at clubs around New South Wales. Without the money we raise from our Cash Housie activities we would not be able to help as many children and their families get to and from specialised treatment.

If you would like to find out more information on about Cash Housie or the nearest venue to you please click on the link below.

We are always looking for more players to support Cash Housie.
