2016 Annual Appeal

Our Annual Appeal is our major once-a-year community fundraising drive, starting in May and timed before the financial year ends. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

Donations are welcomed all year round, if for some reason you are not able to donate during the Annual Appeal period. Simply download one of our Donation Forms and forward it to us in your preferred way.

Our 2016 Annual Appeal TV Ad featuring three generations of Janice Trenow’s family was launched in May 2016 on Channel 7 throughout Central Queensland.

Janice’s father Colin was airlifted from Bowen Hospital by RACQ CQ Rescue with internal bleeding in October 2015. In July 2015, her grandson William, age 2, required specialised care, and was initially flown to Mackay Base Hospital, and then to Townsville Hospital. Her husband Mark was airlifted by RACQ CQ Rescue in July 2005 with life-threatening injuries after a quad bike accident.

“No words can express my gratitude. RACQ CQ Rescue has truly given me so much. I do consider that I’ve won the lottery three times as no amount of money could ever replace the lives of your family.” – Janice Trenow, Bowen, QLD.

This year we are aiming to raise $200,000 from individual, community & business donations. Please help us achieve our 2015 Annual Appeal target by making a donation and help keep RACQ CQ Rescue helicopter service flying!
