Country Hope Week End
The Country Hope Trust provides family centred support to country children diagnosed with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.
The following Program for the inaugural Temora Flyers Inc.- Country Hope Weekend has met with their approval.
This will be a great opportunity for Temora Flyers Inc. to help and showcase our group to the wider community. On show will be our airmanship, professional approach and our strong passion for aviation. In light of this we have decided to make Friday night an alcohol free night. No alcohol in or around the TFI headquarters.
We have 35 children and approximately 20 parents/carers confirmed attending. These numbers are a good manageable start for our inaugural camp.
