Secure your emergency rescue by donating to the annual Westpac Chopper Appeal.

Make sure you have a pocketful of change ready to hand out on Friday, when teams from Westpac Britomart will be competing in a series of activities around the precinct to raise money for the Westpac Chopper Appeal. 

Westpac has been a sponsor of the rescue helicopter services for over 35, and 100 percent of funds raised on the day of the annual appeal go to the charitable trusts that provide rescue helicopter services throughout New Zealand. 

The rescue helicopters are an essential 24-hour, 365-day service that helps people in emergency situations throughout the country. If you want a vividly first-hand (and slightly gruesome!) account of how the helicopter helps Kiwis in the most unexpected of circumstances, check out this story about 9-year-old Yasmin Dunn’s extraordinary rescue.
