Very successful Fly It Forward event for Temora Flyers.
We held our Fly it Forward event on the 12th of March. Due to the weather being unseasonably hot, over 35 degrees centigrade for the whole week, we had three pilots conduct flights in the early morning during the week. On the day we had 12 pilots and planes.
First flights were at 7am with the balance of the 81 ladies flown this day all finished by 11am. One of the highlights of this event was that we had ten sponsors who donated $1 or $2 per lady flown during the week where we raised over $1000 for a local charity called Special People and Careers organisation who work towards providing independent living for special needs adults in the community whose carers are reaching an age where they can’t provide the care needed for their child/adult.
Our dedicated volunteers did a great job making this event happen and to condense it into such a small window of time. participants enjoyed a BBQ and paper plane throwing competition. thank you to everyone who put in such a great effort to make this event a success.
