We are excited to launch our fundraising campaign ‘30K for the Month of May’.
This month, we’re asking our community to dig deep and support us to raise $30,000.00 in order to purchase much needed life-saving equipment for the helicopters and crews. Donations over $2 are tax deductible and we don’t take an administration fee, so your donations go directly to savings lives right here in Tasmania.
This $30,000 fundraising target will enable Westpac Rescue Helicopter Tasmania to continue to provide the equipment and enhancements vital to ensure our service remains world-class and is available support and protect our community, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
To raise awareness and support for this campaign, eight crew members for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service will run the 65km Overland Track on May 28. The runners will aim to complete the distance in just 14 hours. Keep up to date on their progress here!
