Missed out on the last cake stall that the Pukekohe Westpac team put on? This Friday 26 May, the team will be outside their branch on Hall Street, selling sweet treats, with all funds being donated to the Auckland Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
There have been several collection points throughout the month of May, and the team have recruited help from the lads at Wesley College.
On Friday 5 May, three van loads of students helped for the day, and visited local businesses and organisations with their collection buckets for the appeal. Their help made a massive contribution to the annual collection.
"Also, a big thank you to the lovely ladies, Helen Graham and Chris Massey, who helped man the cake stall outside the branch, braving the weather that Friday," says Nicola Andrews, Westpac Customer Banking Consultant.
"The rescue Helicopter is the life line to our rural community, so the appeal is a great cause which needs everyone's support."
The team will be back out again with their stall from 9.30am, Friday 26 May.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
