  • Matatoki near Thames
  • Waitawheta near Waihi
  • Tahuna near Morrinsville

HG Leach are proud Corporate Sponsors of the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust

Each year rescue helicopters provide rescue services to thousands of New Zealanders who for one reason or another have found themselves in a moment of crisis.  Whether they are lost or injured at sea or in the bush, if they have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, or are experiencing a life threatening medical event, quite often the rescue helicopter is the lifeline that for a moment in time is the difference between life and death.

This is only possible due to the huge generosity of the New Zealand public, alongside support from Westpac NZ, and a number of sponsors who together provide more than half of the funding required to operate these services. At HG Leach we are proud to be one of these long-standing sponsors contributing to such a worthy organisation and community service.
