Rescue Chopper Day
Fundraise for Fun: A little from you means a lot to us
October 2016 – Register Now »
For us, Rescue Chopper Day is an opportunity to involve the community in assisting their local rescue chopper through an annual day of fundraising in a fun environment. To be held during the month of October, this initiative is all about putting the fun in fundraising as you help us raise the $3.6m needed each year to keep our vital life-saving service in the air and free to the people of the Capricornia Region.
Help us by:
- Wearing you brightest yellow and blue outfit, dressing up your shops windows in the colours of our chopper, baking colour themed cupcakes or in any manner that creates a sea of yellow and blue around town.
- Registering to hold a fundraiser at your workplace, sporting group/club or school.
- Making a donation online or by donating on the day into one of our donation boxes across the region.
Rescue Chopper Day is for everyone young and not so young. It is the perfect day to express your individual style and wear your best and brightest yellow and blue clothing in support of our rescue service. Ask everyone to make a donation or even invoke a fine policy on Rescue Chopper Day for those who don’t get dressed in yellow and blue. You could even consider both!
There are so many ways to participate. Why not try:
- A bake – cupcakes, muffins or cakes in blue and yellow colours.
- Colouring competitions.
- A BBQ lunch or brekkie with your friends or workmates.
- Craft themed activities.
- Food outlets and coffee shops could donate an amount from each sale.
- Car dealerships – why not throw $5 from every service done into the tin?
- Morning teas.
- Rattle the tin.
- Come up with your own creative idea or check out our Community Fundraising Guide for more brilliant ideas.
Register your workplace, school, sporting group/club as a participant in Rescue Chopper Day and we will forward you an electronic registration pack to help get your day underway. The first 100 groups to register for Rescue Chopper Day will receive a ‘Party Pack’ just to get you in the mood.
*Please note that registration is mandatory.
