Chopper Appeal 2018

Right now we need to raise $250K to save 50 lives over the busy winter period. We need your help, our patients need your help.

New Zealand is a very special country.  Kiwis love to get out there and explore the vast, open spaces, and our mountains; there is a real sense of adventure.

Unfortunately, accidents do happen and it can be terrifying to suffer a medical emergency far from help. Across our rugged, rural and remote outdoors - a place we like to describe as Chopper Country - the Westpac Rescue Helicopter is a life-line.

We are asking for community support because Kiwis understand the importance of this critical service. Your support will enable the Westpac Rescue Helicopter and West Coast NZCC Rescue Helicopter to be there for people in need.

By donating today you will know that when you see (or hear) the Westpac Rescue Helicopter flying over, or you find out that someone you know has used the service, that you have been a part of and helping save lives in our community.

This Chopper Appeal we need to raise $250,000 to save lives over the busy winter period. Your donation today will help keep Chopper County safe and we thank you sincerely for choosing to make a life-saving difference in our community.

We rescued over 900 people

in 2017 alone
