LifeFlight Calls For Volunteers

We’re used to seeing LifeFlight choppers helping South Burnett residents … now the organisation is asking for a helping hand on the ground here

October 17, 2018

RACQ LifeFlight has put a call out for volunteers to help them.

At least $65,000 worth of donations to the life-saving service are sitting in tins in workplaces but there aren’t enough volunteers to collect them.

LifeFlight Foundation Director Leanne Angel said that last year the LifeFlight helicopters responded to 1819 lifesaving missions.

“More than 200 volunteers are the backbone of the LifeFlight Foundation, helping to raise vital funds to keep the helicopter crews flying to the aid of Queenslanders,” she said.

But more are needed and the LifeFlight Foundation is encouraging locals to get involved and sign up to be a volunteer.

Roles include administration assistance, guest speaking at local functions as well as collecting and distributing donation tins.
