Little Wings – Penshurst RSL funding assisted 4 seriously ill children

Penshurst RSL’s Club Grants Category 1 funding to Little Wings has enabled them to assist 4 seriously ill children and their families from regional NSW in accessing the life saving and specialised medical treatment they require from the Westmead Children’s Hospital Newcastle. Funding has covered the variable operational costs associated with the transportation including aviation and motor vehicle fuel, maintenance, insurance and airway fees. To date during the project period, Little Wings has assisted 38 families from 25 regional towns. This has resulted in a total of 197 flights transporting 485 passengers from their regional hometowns in Western NSW, Northern NSW, Hunter New England, Mid North Coast, Southern NSW and Murrumbidgee to Sydney and Newcastle for treatment.
