Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service

Main Content

Over the past decade our Lake Macquarie employees have generously donated almost $1million through regular payroll deduction to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. A small group of dedicated mountain bikers, representing a broad cross-section of people from those at the coal face to those at the key board, have taken their generosity to the rescue helicopter one step further. Whilst riders from both Lake Macquarie and the Lithgow regions participate in various bike riding fundraisers, the Centennial Green team has ridden in the annual Wests Cycle Classic (Westpac Rescue Helicopter Charity Ride) for the past 10 years. Doing this in their own time, they have peddled through tough off-road terrain for five to seven days each year, covering thousands of kilometres and helping raise more than $1 million for a worthy community cause.
