RACQ CapRescue appeals to community for lifesaving donations

Hastings Deering is a proud supporter of community focused programs. Our approach to community involvement is to consult with, listen to and respond openly to our community stakeholders as we partner with them to build a better future.  Our Central Queensland business centres have a long and rewarding local partnership with RACQ CapRescue and are currently supporting the 25th Anniversary of the service, they would love you too as well. Recently RACQ CapRescue Community Engagement Officer Kim Moss spent time at Hastings Deering Rockhampton, as part of their Toolbox talk program. “We are grateful to businesses such as Hastings Deering for having us along to talk more about RACQ CapRescue, in particular the benefits of workplace giving for our organisation,” she said. “Whilst most people in Central Queensland are aware of our service, having a chance to speak with staff in more detail is an invaluable opportunity.”

Hastings Deering Central Queensland Area Manager, Peter Martin, said the company is very proud of their continued association with RACQ Capricorn Rescue. “As one of the largest employers in Rockhampton with a workforce that supports the CQ region, it is important to give back to the community in which we live and work. There have been countless times where we have seen the team at work, whether it be a car crash or winching flood affected residents to safety. This service is paramount to the community and just knowing it exists in our region gives you peace of mind.”

“It was important to have a representative of RACQ CapRescue here to shed some light on the way they operate and to gain some insights into the “day in the life” of one of the crew. It would be great to one day have the service 100% government funded, but for now our business and employees help keep the crew flying through this important community partnership.” 25 years ago, RACQ CapRescue was just a dream.  Today they are the heroes in the sky who keep the people of Central Queensland safe, in a region as diverse as it is vast.  They are on call 24 / 7, 365 days a year - FREE of charge and continue to be there when you need them. But today they need you.  For further information on how you can make a lifesaving contribution and help them celebrate 25 years of service head to www.caprescue.org.au/donate/ or follow the RACQ CapRescue Facebook page.
