Support for Defence Families impacted by the MRH-90 accident


How Can You Help the Families impacted

by the MRH-90 Accident?


Our love and support are with the families of the four ADF members aboard the MRH-90 that went down on Friday night off the coast of Queensland, near Hamilton Island.
While search efforts continue, many in the community have been asking how they can help the families.
The Defence Community Centre, local to the 6th Aviation Regiment, Holsworthy Community Group, are collecting funds to be used to support the families.
“The funds will assist with providing meals, food, grocery vouchers and support for the children involved and whatever else they can do to ease the load for the families during the next few months. Support is appreciated but not expected.” HCG.
Please see the message from HCG in the below image, along with bank account details for those of you who can and would like to donate.
We will forever remember and honour the sacrifices of Captain Lyon, Lieutenant Nugent, Warrant Officer Laycock and Corporal Naggs and stand with the families during this difficult time.
*Please use HCG Families as your reference to ensure all donations get to the families. Copy and paste the details to easily make a donation.
