Donation made to Westpac Life Flight

Westpac Life Flight Donation

The Orange Institution is pleased to announce that it has recently made a donation of $20,000 which was presented to Alan Cook the CEO of Westpac Life Flight in Wellington by Past Grand Master Rod Biel.

The Orange Institution selects charities that serve the local community and are what we consider a good cause to support. The amounts we donate aren’t huge but we know that every bit helps.

Life Flight provides the Wellington-based Westpac Rescue Helicopter for air rescue services and air ambulance services.

Sebastian Grodd, the Marketing & Fundraising Manager of Life Flight responded with a heartfelt thanks, saying “Thank you once again for your long-standing and generous commitment to Life Flight and for your help with save lives, we really do appreciate everything you’ve done to keep us flying.

This donation will be distributed to Helicopter Rescue Trusts which need it the most, and also to Trusts that are purely charitable in nature.

The Trusts that we will divide the donation up equally with are as follows:

  • Eastland Rescue Helicopter Trust
  • Northland Emergency Services Trust
  • Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust
  • Life Flight Trust
