So last year I was conned into doing the West Cycles classic charity ride and as well as the warm fuzzy feelings of being involved in a small group of like minded folk who managed to raise about $100K for the much needed helicopter service I really enjoyed it, so much so I'm doing it again this year.

If you can spare a few dollars towards this worth cause please drop into my fund raising page by following the link below.

And remember every dollar counts so no matter how small the donation it will be appreciated

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service is a vital community service with its missions always increasing.

In the past twelve months their helicopters and crew have conducted over 1,500 life saving missions.

These missions include transporting doctors & paramedics to accident scenes to stabilise and prepare patients for hospital transfers, transferring patients from rural hospitals and health centres to larger metropolitan hospitals, search and rescue missions and assisting police.

No one has ever paid to be assisted by the Service and that is hugely because of the fundraising and support of you, the community
