We don’t know of many six year olds running their own fundraising campaigns! Piper Southern, from Naracoorte SA, has spent the past few months busily organising trading tables, a raffle, a 'guess the lollies in the jar' competition and a school dress up day, all to raise money for the Flying Doctor in memory of her Nonno, a previous RFDS patient who passed away in 2017. Piper has raised more than $7,000 (and counting!) – an incredible result.

"I have had many a coach trip to the Centre, with passengers calling the coach "a bus" or calling the coach captain "a driver". The fine was 50 cents, and more often than not the perpetrator would place more than required into the tin on the dashboard (the process was explained on day one of a 14-day tour). The proceeds were handed in to the RFDS when we arrived in Alice. It was always a bit of fun, but passengers were made aware of the wonderful work that the RFDS do throughout the country and they were happy to contribute to the swear tin. Well done to everyone for your excellent service." Gary Nash

We are immensely grateful for the hundreds, if not thousands of ways, that our RFDS supporters raise money to keep the Flying Doctor flying. Thank you for all you have done, and continue to do.
