Simple gift to save lives

IF YOU are stumped about what to buy family and friends for Christmas, you can thank the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter for keeping it very simple.

It just needs cash to keep it in the air.

The service has launched its annual Christmas appeal and is hoping to fundraise more than $150,000 in the next two months.

The service is free of charge to the community, but more than 60% of its annual $7 million operating budget each year comes from donation support.

If you can help, find the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter envelope in today's paper, drop in some notes and return it.

You can also donate by phoning 6627 4444 or by going to http://www.helirescue.com.au.
