THE fundraising efforts of Kingaroy RSL have raised more than $2000 for CareFlight, and it hopes to raise more again next year.

CareFlight relationship manager Wayne Evans visited the Kingaroy RSL recently to accept the cheque for $2040.60 from manager Maxine Tessman and assistant manager Jim King.

Mrs Tessmann said the RSL held numerous raffles throughout the year to donate to the worthy cause.

Mr Evans said CareFlight spent $12,500 on every patient rescue.

"In the regional areas it is so much more important to get them (patients) to care," he said.

Mr Evans said CareFlight was the primary provider for the South Burnett region.

"We have helicopters based in Toowoomba, Gold Coast and Roma," he said

Kingaroy RSL assistant manager Jim King said the RSL planned to raise more money in 2013.
