Joining with you, the Taupō Pakeke Lions Club


Like you, there is a wonderful group of individuals who are deeply passionate about caring for others.

This remarkable retired group proves that no matter what age you are, you can make a significant impact on your community.

‘Pakeke’ means respected elder. This term perfectly describes the members of the Taupō Pakeke Lions Club.

They’ve been supporting your Greenlea Rescue Helicopter since 2002, raising a total of $24,890 to help us save lives.

That’s an average of $1,500 per year.

If you are one of the extraordinary members of the Taupō Pakeke Lions Club, or if you’ve been involved in any way – we can’t express how much your support means to us. Thank you!

Your contributions play a crucial role in ensuring your rescue helicopter is ready to fly out at a moment’s notice.

The Lions latest contribution has helped fund a medical kit for your rescue helicopter – an essential and indispensable resource for your rescue helicopter crew.

As you can imagine, your rescue helicopter crew never knows what emergency they’ll be called to. It’s crucial that our aircraft remains fully equipped with medical resources so that they can respond in any situation.

This support enables the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter to be a mobile Intensive Care Unit. This is an incredible gift to your community – and all through the generous and kind-hearted support of the Lions Club.

To everyone at Taupō Pakeke Lions Club: thank you for funding a brand new medical kit for the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter, and for helping us save lives in your community.

If you, your club or organisation want to make a difference in your community by fundraising for your rescue helicopter, we’d love to help you!
