We receive funding from the Commonwealth and NSW governments to help us provide our services, but we also rely on our customers paying a contribution towards the service they receive. We are a registered charity and donations over $2.00 are tax-deductible and gratefully received. All donations go towards keeping our vehicles on the road.
