Foxy Ladies hand over the baton in Bundaberg
L-R Nathalie, Danielle and Heather
As mentioned in a previous post, on Sunday 8 March, Heather and Nathalie carried the baton from Caboolture to Bundaberg for the Women Pilot’s Relay of Flight in support of the Australia Cancer Council.
Originally hoping to raise $1,500, in the end Heather and Nathalie managed over $3,600!! What a fantastic effort and congratulations to all donators and helpers alike.
Good on you Foxy Ladies!

Every little bit counts!
Heather Haynes, owner of A22LS Foxbat 24-9100 (officially the 100th Foxbat delivered in Australia) is taking part in the ‘Women Pilots’ Relay of Flight’ to raise awareness and money to fight cancer. This is part of an official Cancer Council of Australia fundraising activity.
Starting on the day after the Avalon Airshow finishes – Monday 2 March 2015 – aircraft are departing Avalon with a relay baton to begin what is hoped will be a complete anti-clockwise circumnavigation of Australia. In the end, there will likely be several dozen different relay ‘legs’ flown, with the baton being passed from one pilot/co-pilot to the next, all along the way.
Heather’s flight, with her friend Nathalie, is due for Sunday 8 March, carrying the baton between Caboolture – her home base – and Bundaberg. She’s hoping to raise at least $1,500 for her leg of the flight.
