Newcastle and Hunter Region Transport Awareness Day
Mackas Sand and Soil are sponsors of the Newcastle and Hunter Region Transport Awareness Day. All the proceeds from the Awareness campaign and events are given to the Rescue Helicopter Service.
Chad Griffith, Marketing Manager for the Rescue Helicopter Service said, “Corporate sponsors are the life force for the communities own Rescue Helicopter Service that help ensure that the fundraising targets are met so that no one has ever had to pay to utilise the service.”
The event is currently held on the first Sunday of November each year. The Newcastle and Hunter Region Road Transport Awareness Day Group (NHRRTAG) was formed back in 1994. It was started by a small collection of individuals from within the local industry under direction from the Road Transport Forum (now known as the Australian Trucking Association) to seek to promote greater awareness and knowledge about the road transport industry and its position within the community. The First Road Transport Awareness Day activity was held in Civic Park Newcastle with a small number of trucks on display. For more about this day, click here – www.transportawarenessday.org.au.
