The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs are pleased to announce Lifeflight as a charity partner in Bundaberg.
Lifeflight is a trusted and relied upon provider of emergency aeromedical care bringing lifesaving medical treatment to seriously ill and injured patients across the Bundaberg region. In 2021 the Bundaberg-based RACQ life flight rescue community helicopter flew 285 lifesaving missions.
Bulldogs CEO Aaron Warburton confirmed that the Bulldogs will be donating $1 for every ticket sold to the Bulldog's home game against the Cowboys at Salter Oval on Sunday, August 7th to support Lifeflight.
Bundaberg Regional Advisory committee deputy chair Dale Rethamel said “ it’s fantastic to see the Bulldogs getting behind the Bundaberg RACQ Lifeflight rescue chopper by donating $1 per game ticket to the lifesaving aeromedical service. The organisation, which relies partly on community support, will put the money towards critical medical equipment, which will help crews continue providing emergency care and airlifts”.
Tom Smith MP, the local state member for Bundaberg commented “ I’m thrilled to see just how committed the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs continue to be to our local community. Rugby League is more than a game, it is a force that brings communities together and that’s exactly what is on display with such an amazing gesture towards life flight in Bundaberg. To know that this game is not only making history but is leaving a legacy is what makes this investment so worthwhile”
Lifeflight will have volunteers at the game collecting donations. To learn more about life flight and get involved, visit http://www.lifeflight.org.au/community/
