36 Seats Aboard Westpac Rescue Helicopter to be Won By Volunteer Collectors for Life Flight Street Appeal

The Life Flight Trust, operators of the Wellington based Westpac Rescue Helicopter and Life Flight NZ Air Ambulance Service, still require volunteer collectors for it's annual street appeal collection next month.

All collectors go into a draw to win one of 36 seats on helicopter rides aboard the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

The street appeal will be held on Thursday Sept 9th in Hutt City, Upper Hutt and the Wairarapa and on Friday Sept 10th in Wellington City, Johnsonville, Porirua, Kapiti and Marlborough.

Collectors are still required on both days.

Any person who collects for as little as one hour will go into the drawer for one of 36 seats on helicopter rides on the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
