NEST was established as a Charitable Trust to provide a dedicated emergency rescue helicopter service for the people of Northland, with the first flight taking place in 1988; since then it has flown more than 20,000 missions and been instrumental in saving thousands of lives.
Northland’s unsealed roads, changeable weather and widespread population mean access to medical treatment by road can be delayed – which means the Northland’s Rescue Helicopter service is just as essential in 2019 as it was in 1988. The service is now in use to a greater degree than ever before and the need to fundraise to keep the service operational is vital.
Let’s help keep this vital service in the air, donate online here, with the official appeal envelope that arrives in your mailbox OR visit us at one of the Regional Breakfasts, see below:
