Last month we hosted a Business Support Crew Event, held at the GCH Aviation Air Emergency Centre. We welcomed over 120 guests and enjoyed presentations from Trust CEO, Christine Prince, Bryce Williamson (a patient), and the crew.
Patients, their families and close friends were invited to come and meet the generous Business Support Crew. We are proud to have a group of dedicated local businesses who help to keep people safe across the Canterbury and West Coast region.
Businesses support is invaluable to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and the generous donations they provide us with allow our rescue crew to continue to save lives. Companies sign up as ‘regular’ supporters sponsoring a mission ($5,000), and effectively, saving a life.
Christine presented a plaque to a very special Trust group at the support crew event. The group donated a significant amount of money towards the development of the winch simulator, as well as crew helmets and additional pairs of night vision goggles. We want to say a very big thank you for their wonderful support.
Thank you again to everyone that attended the Business Support Crew event. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting everyone, and we look forward to continuing the relationships built.
Events such as this, allow us to give back to the people who so kindly continue to give to us.
