How do you want to be remembered?
When you choose to leave a gift to the Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust (the Trust) in your will, we guarantee that your generosity will continue to save lives beyond your own lifetime. Every gift, however large or small, makes a life-saving difference.
Our donors play a vital role in making the Trust a highly respected charity that thousands of people rely on every day of the year. Through the ongoing generosity of our community, we help provide a 24-hour, 7 days a week, dedicated emergency service to the Canterbury West Coast region.
Every year, the Trust faces significant funding challenges. Government grants only partially fund regional rescue helicopter services. Every day, an average of three people in the Canterbury West Coast region will place their lives in the hands of our highly trained teams. Each rescue mission comes at no cost to our patients. This is only possible because of the generosity of our funders and sponsors who make up for the $5,000 shortfall per mission.
By leaving a gift in your will, you can ensure that we will always be there for those in need and now you can write your will for free through our FREE online will service.
