A HUGE DEBT OF GRATITUDE MUST GO TO THE DIRECTORS OF THE OBERTECH GROUP OF COMPANIES WHO VERY RECENTLY MADE THE GRAND GESTURE OF SIGNING UP ALL 70 OF THEIR EMPLOYEES TO BECOME NEW ‘FRIENDS’ OF THE TRUST’S DONOR PROGRAMME.
The incredible support, valued at $3,500, is the first time a company has provided ‘FRIENDS’ membership to its entire staff.
Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust Chairman, Bryce Barnett, says the support of Obertech Group of Companies is vital for the Rescue Helicopter’s operation throughout the Taranaki province. “Obertech Group of Companies is a leading industry in the Taranaki region and has a proud tradition of supporting the community. We are incredibly grateful they have extended that support to the Rescue Helicopter.
“Our team flies an annual average of 200 – 250 hours of rescue missions per annum and have responded to 178 call outs so far this year. Support from Obertech means we can continue to provide this service to the benefit of the group’s employees and their family members, not to mention the wider Taranaki public.”
