Dancing With The Stars special message

Hot off a successful season of TVNZ’ show Dancing with The Stars,  you may recognise these famous faces. Jonny and Kristie Williams are New Zealand champions, multiple times over. in Dancesport. We were thrilled they took a few moments out of their busy schedule to make a special message for all their fans.

When Darcy was born, never in a million years did his mother ever imagine he’d need the services of the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

We Need You

Your support ensures rescue helicopters are available to your community.
Your rescue helicopter can be airborne in 10 minutes and, in a life or death situation this speed and agility can make all the difference. The timely assistance that rescue helicopters provide can reduce disability and improve survival – the sooner treatment begins, the greater chance of patient recovery.

The cost of this is huge. Your rescue helicopter has contracts with ACC, DHB’s and NZ police, providing approximately 50% of the operating costs. This means the remaining 50% of funding must come from the community.

Without your support, your rescue helicopter would not be able to remain operational on a 24/7, 365 day a year basis. This could mean a serious delay in people being rescued, or transported to hospital for urgent treatment.

Support your rescue helicopter and make a life saving difference.
