Northland Rescue Helicopter annual appeal underway

Fundraising efforts for Northland Rescue Helicopter are underway again with the launch of the 2022 annual appeal.

CEO Craig Gibbons says the next three months will be an exciting time for the air ambulance service as its fundraising team aims to attract over $300k in public donations for the third consecutive year.

We are always so appreciative of the generosity of people in Northland with their support of the work we do,” says Mr Gibbons.

“Our team are very aware of, and grateful for, the fundraising efforts that are done on our behalf throughout the year. They are part of the community too and are really proud to be a part of the annual appeal.“The same goes for Northpower and Top Energy for their fantastic ongoing sponsorship. They have been on board with us since day one, back in 1988, and we really appreciate their backing and passion for our cause.”

Top Energy CEO Russell Shaw says the reason for sponsoring Northland Rescue Helicopter is simple.

“We support the cause because the service saves lives – lots of lives,” says Mr Shaw.

“Everyone in Northland knows someone who has been helped by one of these choppers and that’s why there is so much community support. Top Energy staff have had their lives saved by this service and that is the case for Northpower too, so I encourage people to get in behind the 2022 appeal and donate what they can.”

Andrew McLeod, Northpower’s CEO, says like Top Energy, the company remains committed to the service.

“It is a world class operation and it is here for us all 24/7. It is just so critical for keeping our community safe,” says Mr McLeod.

“Northpower staff are really proud to be aligned with our rescue helicopters. The crews do a great job for the people of Northland so it is good to be able to continue our support of them.”

Northland Rescue Helicopter flies around 1200 missions per year. People can donate at and follow the 2022 annual appeal on Facebook.
