Raising money to save lives

Life Flight is a charity that saves the lives of ordinary New Zealanders. Their famous red and yellow helicopter is a common sight in the skies around Wellington, hurrying to rescue people in urgent need across the lower North Island and upper South Island.

Since its establishment in 1982, Life Flight has helped over 40,000 people. On average, Life Flight's helicopter and aeroplanes come to the rescue every six hours. To continue this life-saving work, Life Flight depends on public donations. This is where Interislander steps in.

Since 2014, Interislander has been sponsoring Life Flight's annual fundraiser, the Life Flight Open Day, which is held in March each year. Together, we organise an entertaining family day out that attracts thousands of Wellingtonians, who come and have fun while learning about Life Flight's life-saving work and donating to this special cause.

We also help fundraise at the annual Life Flight Gala Dinner and on Life Flight's Annual Appeal Day, with Interislander staff collecting at the Wellington Railway Station and on our ferries.
