Rescue Helicopter Ambassador Update
A number of our Ambassadors have been busy, Stewart McSkimming , has built a model of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter, it is an exact replica of the H-145. Stewart very generously allowed us to put this on display at the Hub Hornby here in Christchurch to help promote Westpac’s Chopper Appeal. If you are anywhere near Hornby, we encourage you to pop in and view the Helicopter. Stewart has also recently launch a book “Go Hard or Go Home” it is his live story, all proceeds of the book will be donated to the Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust.
Another of our Ambassadors, Bryce Williamson, Club Captain of the Christchurch Tramping Club hosted a group of 40 Club members here at the Base, they received a presentation to help understand the role of the Rescue Helicopter Service, meet some of the crew and ask a number of questions, in particular how to stay safe whilst out exploring our beautiful country.
