Air Rescue Trust´s Chopper Appeal Campaign 2017

Fundraising Activities‏


You can raise money on behalf of the Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust as an individual or in a group. You can organise your own event, take part in a team/group event, or be sponsored to take part in an organised event. If you don’t know what type of fundraiser you want to do, here are some ideas:


Examples of your own event: Golf Tournament, Auction, Afternoon Tea, Bake Sale, Car Wash, Dance/Disco, Fun Run, Rugby Tournament, School or Business Mufti Day, Talent Show, Fancy Dress School/Work Day, Quiz Night, Cocktail Party. At any event it can be a great idea to have raffles and sell raffle tickets to add to your revenue.


Examples of a sponsored event: City to Surf (in 2016 we are the sponsored charity!), Half/Full Marathons, Cycling Events and Triathlons.


A good idea is to set up a campaign page for free at to receive donations hassle-free.


Be clear about your goals:

     -What is your aim – to raise money or awareness of our air rescue service, or both?

     -What is your fundraising target?


The next step is to get in touch with us!
