Time now to offer service to keep Little Wings in air

VOLUNTEERING with Little Wings has been an eight-month journey for Kate Benchoam who provides her time and skills outside of the corporate sector, to give support to regional and remote communities.

As her career and family commitments reached a point where volunteering became viable, Kate found herself drawn to Little Wings through her role at Aeria Management Group within Bankstown Airport.
A not-for-profit organisation, Little Wings provides free, professional, safe flight and ground transport services for seriously ill children in rural and regional NSW, ACT and QLD.
“I chose Little Wings as my preferred charity over its dedication supporting seriously ill children and their families from regional areas which resonated deeply with me,” she said.
“The passion, determination and creativity of the team has left a lasting impression on me and I admire the organisation’s commitment to providing equal opportunities for regional children in accessing essential medical care in Sydney.”
Little Wings, to Kate, is more than a transportation service.
The organisation, with its firm focus on safety, respect and care, goes above and beyond, “they don’t say no, they get ‘stuff’ done”.
Kate appreciates the holistic support Little Wings provides, easing the impact of long-term illnesses on entire families and helping to restore good health to the children.
The moment of greatest impact for Kate has been working alongside passionate individuals committed to the Little Wings purpose.
“Every interaction, project and undertaking are geared toward raising the organisation’s profile, generating the much-needed funds to meaningfully support seriously ill children and their families,” she said.
