Qantas Pathfinders Charity Flight will head to Uluru in support of RIDBC

On Saturday 12 August, the annual Qantas Pathfinders Charity Flight will head to Uluru to raise much needed funds for Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children (RIDBC).

Joining passengers on this special return flight from Sydney to Australia’s iconic Uluru will be distinguished ABC radio presenter and Pathfinders Ambassador, Simon Marnie.

The day starts with a champagne breakfast aboard the 737-800 aircraft kindly donated by Qantas.

“Passengers will be able to enjoy the breathtaking views and amazing photo opportunities of Uluru and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), whilst aboard the privately chartered Qantas flight,” said RIDBC Committees and Events Manager, Kaye Bailey.   “On the ground, guests will learn about the culture and history of the local Anangu people on a guided tour of rock paintings, sacred sites and the Mutitjulu Waterhole, followed by a locally inspired three course lunch at Sails in the Desert.”

Tickets for the flight cost $895 per passenger, including return flights from Sydney to Uluru, all meals and transfers. For more information head to www.charityflight.com.au  or contact Kaye Bailey on 02 9872 0329 or kaye.bailey@ridbc.org.au

Qantas Captain Craig Lambert and Chairman of the Charity Flight Committee says, “I am very proud to be part of this exciting and unique fundraiser to help the children and adults supported by RIDBC. It truly is a wonderful day out, which couldn’t happen without the generosity of the pilots and cabin crew who donate their time and our sponsors – Qantas, Viva Energy, Q Catering, Sydney Airport, Ayers Rock Airport, AirServices Australia, AAT Kings and Voyages.”

Since taking to the skies in 2002, this unique annual event has raised more than $1.294 million in support of RIDBC and is only made possible because of the remarkable efforts of Qantas Pathfinders, as well as their numerous supporters and sponsors.

All proceeds go to RIDBC which assists over 8,000 children and adults with vision or hearing loss, and their families, across Australia.

RIDBC is a charity and Australia’s largest non-government provider of therapy, education and cochlear implant services for people with vision or hearing loss, supporting thousands of adults, children and their families, each year.

RIDBC relies heavily on fundraising and community support to be able to continue to make a difference in people's lives.
