Bush Kids RFDS 2020 Calendar

Do you want to help rural and regional Australia plus support the bush?

The perfect way to do this is by buying a Bush Kids RFDS 2020 Calendar. The Calendars are only $25 each plus postage with net proceeds going to the NSW/ACT Division of the RFDS.
This is the 4th Calendar that Bush Kids Australia has produced to raise funds for the RFDS. The past 3 Calendars we have raised $25,500 between Queensland, NT/SA and WA Divisions of the RFDS. We are hoping to raise $15,000 this year but need your help to get there!
Please consider buying a Calendar or two. They make excellent Christmas presents and are a gift that keeps on giving all year round. The perfect snapshot into the lives of bush families from Australia all over.
Thank you to our past supporters and we hope that you will once again purchase this unique gift for your loved ones and please encourage your family and friends to support this very worthwhile cause by buying Calendar’s as well.
We would also like to acknowledge our amazing sponsors: Rural Weekly, Broad Leaf Santa Stud, Haylink, Condabri Beef, Corner Country NSW, Noel and Jill Mobbs, Little Dog IT and The Bush Store.

Did you know: Reverend John Flynn and the AIM established 15 hospitals staffed with 1 nurse and a companion, across remote Australia in places such as Derby WA, Oodnadatta SA, Birdsville Qld? They did this without any government assistance relying upon donations from the public. These hospitals were a lifeline in a vast and rugged landscape, enabling bush people access to healthcare. Due to the enormous distances the Reverend Flynn realised that this was not the complete answer and with the suggestion of an airman who died in the war, about having a flying doctor available for the bush people, (remember flying was in its infancy at this time and was fraught with danger), the Reverend Flynn acted on this amazing idea, and didn’t stop until he had established the RFDS.

Thankyou for your continued support
