You can support the Rescue Helicopter Service by fundraising. The Rescue Helicopter Service is only partially government funded, meaning we rely on our community to help fund this life-saving Service.

The best way to fundraise for us is by hosting a fundraising event on behalf of Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue.

Our supporters have raised a lot of money through community fundraisers. Golf tournaments, sausage sizzles, bake sales, quiz nights, scavenger hunts, running marathons are some ideas. The sky really is the limit!

All of the money you raise will be used to fund life-saving missions that make a real difference to over 900 families in our community every year.

If you are thinking about fundraising for us please contact us at or call the friendly team on 03 358 8244.
