Dear [FIRST_NAME]

These past two months have been the busiest yet for flights at Little Wings as we work hard to ensure families return home safely for Christmas. As the year comes to a close, it is a good time to reflect on the year that has been and the achievements that have been made. A big thanks to all of our dedicated and hardworking staff and volunteers who have made it all possible. On behalf of the Little Wings team, I wish all of our supporters, partners and sponsors a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Enjoy a break and time off with family and friends, and we look forward to updating you in the New Year with our exciting plans for 2016.

Regards, Richelle Koller, Managing Director

 

Upcoming Events

28th December - Sydney Thunder Charity Match. The Charity Match this year is Sydney Thunder vs Adelaide Strikers. If you love cricket and you'd like to show your support to Little Wings come to the cricket and cheer on the Thunder!

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. 


Our Children's Story - Ryan

My son Ryan (10 years old) was diagnosed with eweings sarcoma, a rare bone cancer in July this year. Since then, my whole world has changed. We have had scans, tests and biopsies before commencing treatment at the children's hospital in Westmead. 

The very first time we flew up to Sydney, Ryan was a little nervous about going in such a small plane. Sammi and Adrian (our pilots for the day) were fantastic and put Ryan at ease straight away. Within the first five minutes, Ryan was more than comfortable and able to enjoy the flight. 

I cannot speak highly enough of all the wonderful people that we have met at Little Wings. Nothing is too much trouble (or at least that’s how they make it seem). Both Ryan and I would like to say a special thanks to Sammi, our pilot. She is always very caring and compassionate towards us, and extremely good at her job.



Sydney Thunder

As the charity partner of Sydney Thunder, Little Wings will be in attendance at the match on 28th December. There will be promotion throughout the game for Little Wings including a video with a few of our families and cricketer Pat Cummins.

We have the opportunity to fundraise at this match and are looking for a few more volunteers. If you are interested in helping by bucket collecting please email info@littlewings.org.au.

Guardian Angels Ride to the Ridge

Little Wings recently received support from the Guardian Angels Motorcycle Club.

Last year this group decided to raise funds for Little Wings to assist a family from Manilla who needed to use our flight service. This year, the group again raised awareness and funds for Little Wings on their annual ‘Ride to Ridge’ on 3rd October, raising $4,000.

Thank you to the Guardian Angels for their valuable support.
