New Zealand’s rescue helicopters rely on donations from everyday people. So this Chopper Appeal, we wanted to give these people a spot on the side of a rescue helicopter to recognise their support.
Everyone who donated online at chopperappeal.co.nz during May had the unique opportunity to upload their Facebook profile picture and we’ve printed all of these on one of Waikato's Westpac Rescue Helicopters, making it The People’s Chopper.
The People’s Chopper will be around for New Zealand to check out throughout June, including at the National Fieldays at Mystery Creek. You can also look out for photos and video of The People’s Chopper on our Facebook and Instagram.
