Do you know someone who selflessly donates their time and energy to help keep the Flying Doctor in the air?
They might raise funds. They may be a volunteer. They might be an emergency services or health worker who goes the extra mile. Or just an everyday hero who helps out whenever the Flying Doctor needs a helping hand.
We need your help to thank them and celebrate what they do. Because without them, we'd be grounded.
Nominate someone in your community who deserves to be recognised in the 2020 Local Hero Awards, and they could win $7500 to help fund a vital community health or wellbeing program in your area.
Due to the many challenges and safety concerns of Coronavirus we have postponed the RFDS Local Hero Awards. However, we feel in this challenging time it’s all the more important to celebrate those in our communities who contribute through their selfless efforts to the health and wellbeing of their fellow community members. We will extend the Local Hero nominations deadline to 30 June 2020 and hope to announce our RFDS Local Heroes in September. Please check back for further updates as the situation unfolds.
RFDS (QLD Section) is committed to supporting communities in this time and has further resources available regarding Coronavirus for regional and remote communities in Queensland at flyingdoctor.org.au/qld/covid-19/
With the support of our Local Heroes, the sky’s the limit.
