Simon Corbell has announced that he’s done the paperwork to keep the SouthCare helicopter service flying over Canberra for another five years:
- The extension of the Snow Hydro SouthCare contract for another five years is great news for the community,” Mr Corbell said.
“The rescue helicopter service has really made its mark as a vital service in the ACT and surrounding NSW for over a decade now, and the ACT Labor Government has ensured it will continue to do so.”
Mr Corbell also announced a major boost to Snowy Hydro SouthCare’s sponsorship arrangements.
“Three local organisations have come on board to support Snowy Hydro SouthCare as corporate partners – John James Memorial Foundation will provide $50,000; Capital Chemist will contribute $30,000; and Canberra Yellow have committed $25,000,” he said
“Canberra Milk and Dairy Farmers will also continue their long-standing support of the Service with another $75,000 this year and will also sponsor the popular Celebrity Ballroom event in May 2009.
