The weather was picture perfect today as the Rapid Relief Team (RRT) has joined forces with Fun Flight to give kids facing difficulties a chance to take to the blue sky and have some fun. 

The RRT supported Fun Flight’s event on Saturday, which saw children and their families taken on a joy flight giving them the chance to see their local area from a different view.

RRT volunteers were at Bankstown Airport today serving up more than 350 free meals including classic beef burgers and sausage sandwiches to the Bankstown community.

The RRT is an initiative of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church (PBCC) and aims to give back and support the interests of the community.

Lloyd Grimshaw from the PBCC said the RRT always looked forward to the worthy event which gives kids who are affected by adversity a wonderful experience.

“We are a Christian Charity that operates with Christian values and this is an excellent opportunity for us to display our kindness and compassion to children and their families who need it most,” Mr Grimshaw said.

“However, the real highlight is to see the entire community come together for this special cause and put genuine smiles on these kids’ faces.

“The RRT looks forward to participating and supporting at many more Fun Flight events in the future.”

FunFlight began in 2007 and is a national not-for-profit organisation based in Melbourne. Since inception, FunFlight has flown over 12,000 participants, giving children and their families the chance to fly.

The RRT offers quality catering assistance to charitable and government organisations confronting some of humankind’s greatest challenges, including natural disasters, heart disease, cancer research and the plight of the homeless.

Across the globe, the RRT are mobilised and ready to respond where we are needed most.

Every day in some small way, RRT volunteers offer a helping hand to those in need. For more information about the Rapid Relief Team, go to
