The Royal Flying Doctor Service is as Australian as the $20 note, with the charity’s story honoured on the banknote. Donations and financial assistance are a part of its legacy and the not-for-profit aeromedical organisation are calling on city folk to help country folk to “Flick us a Flynn’’ and help keep the Flying Doctors flying. Donations can be made at www.flickusaflynn.org.au. #FlickusaFlynn #RFDS #FlyingDoctor
