The Rescue Crew is on call 24/7 , 365 days a year, including over public holidays, such as Christmas and New Years Eve but we are only able to do this with your help. Support our Festive Appeal this year, and help us to save lives in Hawke's Bay, this Christmas and all year round.
Just as every minute counts in a life or death situation, every dollar counts when it comes to keeping us flying. Make a donation online or over the phone on 06 878 1630. This will help us keep our Helicopter free of charge and available for all of Hawke's Bay.
If you have a few hours spare and are free to help our Street Collection on Friday 8th or Saturday 9th December, we'd love to hear from you! We have collection sites in Napier and Havelock, and we'll provide you with a Team Rescue Helicopter t-shirt to wear (and keep). Email Beth on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Organise a 'Red for Rescue' mufti day at your school or workplace and support your local rescue helicopter service this Christmas. You could also bake red cakes, or organise a colouring competition. We can provide posters, balloons and a collection bucket for your event. Just get in touch! Upload your pictures to our Facebook page with the hashtag red for rescue.
