THIS year’s 10th anniversary North Coast Petroleum Casino Truck Show will give a special present to one of our communities most crucial organisations.
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service has been named as the charity partner for the 2023 NCP Casino Truck Show.
Spokesperson for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service Zeke Huish said as a local not-for-profit, they were thrilled to be chosen as the charity partner.
“Over the 40 years we have operated throughout the Northern Rivers, we have developed a connection to the trucking and transport community through our attendance at emergencies and accidents on our roadways,” Mr Huish said.
“It is the donation support of the community and events like the Casino Truck Show that help to keep us on standby 24/7, ready to respond when we are needed most.”
Richmond Valley Council Mayor Robert Mustow said it was great to have the Rescue Helicopter Service on board as charity partner and encouraged everyone to support the event.
“Last year, the Truck Show was a huge success, and this year it’s going to be even better,” Cr Mustow said.
North Coast Petroleum’s Mick McKinlay said he was honoured his company was again naming rights sponsor of the Casino Truck Show and welcomed the decision to include the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service as a charity partner.
“Working in the transport industry obviously comes with risks; we at NCP welcome the opportunity to help the Helicopter Service raise much-needed funds,” Mr McKinlay said.
The 2023 Casino Truck Show is on Saturday 5 August, getting underway at 10am with an impressive truck parade from the Casino industrial estate to the CBD.
The family-fun day includes a display of hundreds of trucks throughout the CBD, entertainment from Airtime FMX, live music, street performers, food stalls and markets.
