Accidents happen every day.

Last year the Westpac Rescue Helicopter responded to nearly 300 people in our community. Help from above is closer than you think.

This Chopper Appeal we need your help to raise $205,000 so we can be there if things don't go as we planned.

We are very blessed to have such wonderful and loyal supporters who we rely on in times of need; especially now at Chopper Appeal

Your support enables people all across Canterbury and the West Coast to live their lives to the fullest, knowing that if anything happens, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter will be there to help at any time, day or night.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter is Canterbury's safety net.

Please help this appeal so we can all go on living life to the full. It is about peace of mind. If everyone can contribute, we can support eachother and our friends and families.

Let's all come together to make Chopper Country a safe place to be.
