For over 10 years Avida has been supporting the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) and this year was no different.
"The RFDS is Avida's preferred charity, it’s not only a great cause, but it’s a great cause that is close to the heart of us here at Avida and our customers" said Ben Binns Avida's CEO
Avida's customers travel to remote parts of Australia through the use of their Motorhomes and Caravans and Avida recognise the importance of the service that the RFDS provides. The RFDS provides a great amount of reassurance to Avida's customers knowing that they will be there no matter what remote area of our beautiful countryside they may be exploring.
Avida raises funds each year through its Avida RV Club, and it is the member’s generosity with donations and volunteering at shows that make the fundraising possible. Avida itself then matches the money raised on a dollar for dollar basis.
At Avida's 50th anniversary dinner recently, Avida was pleased to hand over a cheque for $34,000 to the RFDS.

RFDS CEO Greg Sam said “The support from Avida and the Club members ensure that the Flying Doctor can continue to be there in emergency evacuations and provide a range of healthcare services to those who would otherwise not have access to these”.
“On behalf of the Flying Doctor and our patients, thank you once again for helping us take the finest care to the furthest corner of Australia” said Mr Sam.
