Anglican Church flies to the rescue

IT USUALLY doesn't cost $1000 for a morning tea and crafts activities, but for St Peter's Anglican Church members, the more expensive it is, the happier they are.

This year they have donated $1000 to the RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue service from funds raised at their Mother's Day Morning Tea.

The event has been held annually for 15 years.

St Peter's Anglican Church representative Jan Clifton said it was a pleasure to be part of the fundraiser.

"It's all about a group of ladies that put their efforts and hard work into their crafts and the morning tea for the benefit of others," she said.

They will also donate $600 to Operation Christmas Child.

RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service business developer Michael Jones said it was donations such as these that allowed the service to continue.

"It's always amazing to see the support from the community for their services," he said.

"This will go towards helping us with day-to-day costs for the helicopter.

"It's an expensive service to keep in the air, but it's donations like this that help maintain the service."
