Since the launch of this year’s Life Saver Helicopter Christmas appeal the owner of Lismore business Online Coins, Andrew Mitchell, has become a proud Rescue Partner

Helicopter service GM Kris Beavis offered sincere thanks to Andrew and his business for their generous support of the appeal.

The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter launched its Christmas Appeal at the beginning of November with hopes of raising over $115,000 to help with saving lives over the festive season.

It’s about halfway to making that target, with just over $63,000 raised so far.

The service relies on community and corporate support to help it to fundraise over $5 million each year to keep its helicopters flying.

‘Our operations are busy flying on average over seven missions a week which makes things like our Christmas appeal so vital to ensuring we are there when our community need us’ Mr Beavis said.

Donations can be given over the phone by calling the helibase on 6627 4444 or online at
