The Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust is privileged to announce and welcome the Lindsay Foundation as its newest Community Partner.

With their mission to support individuals and organisations making a positive difference in New Zealand, the Lindsay Foundation has generously chosen to support the Canterbury and West Coast Rescue Helicopter Service in the delivery of services to the regions.

Each year, Canterbury’s Westpac Rescue Helicopters and the West Coast’s ROA Mining Rescue Helicopter fly around 120 paediatric missions, transporting critically unwell children and young people to tertiary hospital facilities in Christchurch and Greymouth.

Together, we are looking after some of our communities’ most vulnerable members – our children – at their time of greatest need. We are so very grateful to the Lindsay Foundation for their generosity in supporting the cost of rescue helicopter services for paediatric patients across the regions in the year ahead.

Thank you
