Auck­lan­ders have helped raise much-needed funds for the West­pac Chop­per Ap­peal. This year the re­gion con­trib­uted $275,000 to­wards the fundraiser. All do­na­tions re­ceived by the West­pac Chop­per Ap­peal were dis­trib­uted back to the 16 res­cue he­li­copter ser­vices around the coun­try. West­pac’s gen­eral man­ager of marketing Andy Kerr said the to­tal raised was a fan­tas­tic ef­fort from the com­mu­nity. ‘‘We’d like to thank ev­ery­one who con­trib­uted around the coun­try, and to those that gave of their time to or­gan­ise the wide va­ri­ety of fundrais­ing events this year.’’ New Zealan­ders from across the coun­try raised a to­tal of nearly $1.3 mil­lion.
