Our sponsors are the vital life-blood of our organisation; without their dedication and loyalty we would likely not be able to provide the service that so many rely upon.
We encourage you to support our sponsors' businesses - because if they continue to prosper, then so too will their support of ARHT... and that's to everyone's benefit.
Allow us to introduce to you, our PRINCIPAL SPONSOR, Westpac Bank:
Westpac bank's support of rescue helicopters started in the early nineteen-eighties with their sponsorship of similar services in Australia and the Wellington based rescue chopper. In 1986, seeing an oportunity to extend that support to the Auckland region, Westpac became principal sponsor of the rescue helicopter, and an enduring relationship was thus forged.
Over the years Westpac has played a formidable role in helping build and develop your rescue service into the professional world-respected orgsanisation that it is today. And Westpac's support is far from being just a financial contribution, with it's deep belief in, and enthuiasm for the rescue helicopter evdent througout all levels of its employee base, with many volunteering and contributing to the ongoing fundraising events and initiatives drunig the course of each year.
So thankyou to Westpac and to all your staff, on behalf of all of us here at ARHT and the greater Auckland community, for sticking by us through thick and thin!
...and huge thanks also to our other MAJOR SPONSORS:
