Hello my name is Ashleigh Birch. I am currently competing in the Queensland Rodeo Association Princess Quest as part of this quest this year we are raising funds to be donated to the Royal Flying Doctors Service which is a very important service in outback Queensland as you well might imagine here is a bit of insight into the Queensland sector of the Royal Flying Doctors
The Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia, Queensland Section (RFDS) is a highly professional and technologically advanced organization. The Royal Flying Doctor Service is the major fixed-wing aero medical service in Queensland and significant provider primary health care services in rural and remote areas of the State.
The Royal Flying Doctor Service has eight Bases located throughout Queensland - Brisbane, Bundaberg, Cairns, Charleville, Longreach, Mt Isa, Rockhampton and Townsville. These Bases form a strategic network that facilitates the effective and efficient delivery of health care throughout Queensland.
Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section) employs almost 200 full-time, part-time and casual staff comprising medical officers, casual women's health doctors, flight nurses, allied health professionals, pilots and administration.
The Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section) relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations, schools, and community groups across Queensland to help make up the shortfall in funding.
This support ensures the Service can continue its commitment of providing its many services, including 24 hour emergency care and treatment for those in need.
Without the generosity and support of individuals, community groups and organizations across the State, those living and working in regional, rural and remote Queensland would not have the lifeline they have come to depend upon. We thank you.
A gracious thank you is extended to those who assist us financially along with our dedicated RFDS Auxiliaries and support groups for their continuing contributions So I am writing to you as I am looking for businesses such as yours to possibly donate a prize that can be raffled at Rodeo’s I attend or at other venues or donations to support this great service to outback Australians. If you could contact me back that would be fantastic thank you again for your time.
If you'd like to contribute to this cause, contact Ashleigh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
