Air Rescue Trust´s Chopper Appeal Campaign 2017

Chopper Appeal Raffle


The Westpac Rescue Helicopter watches over the lives of half a million people in one of the most geographically diverse areas of New Zealand.  The Air Rescue Crew complete over 900 missions each year. Each mission costs an average of $8,625; it is an expensive but essential life-saving service.  Each year we need to raise the $7 million to keep this essential service running. 


The support we receive from the community is essential and appreciated beyond measure – please support your Air Rescue Crew in Canterbury by purchasing a raffle ticket today. 


Draw will be held at the Westpac Regional Office, 2 Show Place on 25 July at 1:00pm.

Winners will be notified via contact details provided at time of ticket purchase. 

Prizes cannot be exchanged for cash.

Results will be published on the Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust's Facebook page.



All proceeds from this raffle will support the Canterbury Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
