Supporting our community is a very important part of our business. One of our favourite times of the year is the annual presentation to the Trustpower/TECT Rescue Helicopter.
Every member of the EVES team – that’s salespeople, marketing, finance, administrators and personal assistants - has the opportunity to contribute on a regular basis through their pay and then the company rounds this into a sizeable cheque.
Those that can, head out to the Ian Pain Memorial Hangar to enjoy a morning tea with Pilot Manager Liam Brettkelly and this year we were joined by Leigh Sefton who has joined the helicopter full time having previously been a volunteer and of course, is well known throughout the community for his work around surf lifesaving.
The cost of operating our local rescue helicopter is huge and without community support would not be able to remain operational on a 24/7, 365 day basis. You don’t have to go far to hear a story about how the helicopter has saved the life of someone close to them. Our community is very fortunate to have the major support of Trustpower and TECT and we are proud to see our EVES name alongside the other like-minded businesses who also contribute.
