New Zealand and Reader’s Digest have voted the Westpac Rescue Helicopter the Most Trusted Charity Brand for 2018. Reader’s Digests conducts this annual poll and the public’s vote of confidence is great to receive.
Being voted the Most Trusted Charity Brand is very rewarding, especially as there are so many great charities in New Zealand. The Westpac Rescue Helicopter is a life-saving emergency service. Over the past year, we responded to over 900 missions in Canterbury and the West Coast.
As Rick Knight, Crew Chief, states, “It is fantastic for the whole team to be recognised in this way. From the crew, all of the staff at the base, to the engineers who keep us going, and finally our community – we all share this recognition.”
The Westpac Rescue Helicopters saves thousands of lives every year, but it can only be there thanks to the support of Westpac and the whole community. The service relies on support from across New Zealand. Community groups, corporates and individuals who have contributed save lives.
