EVERY year David Cassels, from Cassels' Automotive, tucks away $30 from every car sold and donates it to a deserving charity.

This year the company donated $7020 to CareFlight Australia.

Mr Cassels said he hoped to make a similar donation next financial year and was happy to show his support for CareFlight and the community.

CareFlight Australia representative Sarah Delahunty visited Warwick this week to collect the cheque on behalf of the life-saving service.

"It's contributing to the life saving work we do," she said.

"CareFlight came to the region over 100 times this financial year," she said. "A lot of those were farming accidents so we're in this region a lot.

"One-third of CareFlight funding comes from community donations.

"We want to thank Cassels for the ongoing support; the support is incredible."

Cassels Automotive is a locally-owned dealership in Warwick and Mr Cassels said he would continue to support the community.

CareFlight said all it had achieved during the years had been done with the support of the community it served.
