Hi my name is Mark Inglis and I am proud to be an Ambassador for the Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue.
Like many charities the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Trust has been significantly impacted by Covid-19.
Fundraising is down close to 50%. However, our mission numbers are up as life goes on; there are medical instances and accidents and emergencies and we all need the Rescue Helicopter to be there in these life or death situations.
The Air Rescue Helicopter Service could not save lives without the generous support from our community. Make a life-saving difference today by making a donation.
Our volunteers are essential to our team and to the Air Rescue Helicopter Service. People who make a life-saving difference by giving up their time to support the Service.
You can help spread the word about the Air Rescue Helicopter Service by fundraising on our behalf, if you're interested, find out more visit our Fundraise for Us page.

It contributes towards the cost of each life-saving
