Glen Innes Public School raise money for rescue helicopter
About $400 was raised for the Westpac Rescue Helicoper Service by the children of Glen Innes Public School. As a reward, they were read "Mildred Makes a Difference" about how a helicopter called Mildred rescues a boy named Jimmy who has fallen and hurt himself in the bush.
When Nicki Lee’s son, Thomas, was born, he had a punctured lung and his life was saved by the rescue helicopter service. Thomas’ story inspired his mum to help. To raise money, pupils bought a “friendship band” - and raised $400.
