Funds help out yet again

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

This year’s West­pac Chop­per Ap­peal raised more than $150,000 for the Life Flight Trust across the Welling­ton re­gion.

Over­all, more than $1.3 mil­lion was raised across the coun­try.

All do­na­tions from the West­pac Chop­per Ap­peal will be dis­trib­uted back to the 16 res­cue chop­per ser­vices across the coun­try.

West­pac’s direc­tor of cor­po­rate Af­fairs, Sue Fo­ley, said the to­tal raised is another fan­tas­tic ef­fort.

‘‘ New Zealan­ders have again shown amaz­ing sup­port for their lo­cal res­cue he­li­copters. Their gen­eros­ity con­tin­ues to en­sure these vi­tal emer­gency ser­vices can stay in the air and carry out life- sav­ing res­cue mis­sions ev­ery day,’’ Fo­ley said.
