Raising money to save lives

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

Since its creation in 1982, Life Flight has helped over 30,000 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 proudly sponsoring Life Flight's annual fundraiser, the Life Flight Open Day. Together, we organise an exciting family day out that attracts thousands of Wellingtonians, young and old, to 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 with our famous Balloon Pop! Keep an eye on their website to get details of the next Gala Dinner, as it really is a wonderful and worthwhile event.
