RACQ CareFlight Rescue Bears bring a ray of sunshine to children in need

Fifteen of CareFlight’s cuddliest and cutest bears will go to new young friends in need, thanks to the generosity of RACQ CareFlight supporters.

SunnyKids, a crisis accommodation centre for homeless children and their families on the Sunshine Coast was CareFlight’s September Charity of the Month.

CareFlight supporters have thrown their weight and their wallets behind SunnyKids, buying $700 worth of bears which CareFlight in turn donates on their behalf to SunnyKids.

RACQ CareFlight North Coast Relationship Manager, Angela Miles, said CareFlight was thrilled to be supporting another charity like SunnyKids which shares its passion for protecting children.

“One in every 12 of RACQ CareFlight’s patients is under the age of 12,” Mrs Miles said.

“Each of those children is given a CareFlight bear to comfort them during what can be a daunting flight and our crews witness first-hand the big difference this small gesture can make.

“We hope our gift to SunnyKids will provide the same level of comfort to many more children who are also doing it tough.”
