Supercharge the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter

Hi New Zealand,

As part of Z Energy’s annual Good In The Hood promotion, the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter have been selected as one of the chosen charities eligible to apply for an additional supercharge to the funds they have already received from Z this month.

Z wants the good people of New Zealand to have their say on who the money goes to, so we really need your help.

All you need to do is follow the link, watch our video so you know what we are planning to do with the money and how much we are asking for. Then please click view comments and join in the discussion by letting Z Energy why you think they should grant our access for funding.

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.

We are partially funded by a government contract with National Ambulance Sector Office (NASO). We rely heavily on the generosity of sponsors and the community to help fund the shortfall that allows us to be rescue ready 24/7, 365 days of the year. This crucial financial support ensures our rescue helicopter can continue to bring life-saving equipment, rescue personnel, and intensive care paramedics directly to the patient.

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 lifesaving difference.

Saving Lives, Together.
