Over $1 million has been raised across New Zealand by Westpac staff and all of the wonderful Westpac customers. Close to $200,000 has been raised in this region. Westpac has completed the Westpac Chopper Challenge, run quizzes, as well as out collecting money.
Westpac GM Consumer Bank and Wealth, Simon Power says the total raised is due to the hard work and dedication of Westpac staff, volunteers and, our generous supporters.
“This year’s chopper appeal was focussed on the concept of ‘Chopper Country’ and keeping people safe. Safe as they go out and live their lives to the fullest in New Zealand’s great outdoors. Whether they’re at work or out exploring, as Kiwis do,” said Mr Power.

YOU CAN STILL SUPPORT THIS CHOPPER APPEAL
Our recent campaign featured Rick Knight’s account about the crew spending the night in Dunsandel. This campaign has been very successful thanks to all of our wonderful supporters. Enough money has been raised to fund a further 38 life-saving missions. Our target is 50 and the money is still coming in. This is paying for the missions the crew are doing today keeping up with the increased winter demand. Thank you for your support!
