Funds help out yet again
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.
