Supporting Life Flight without cheques

As you may be aware, New Zealand banks have now phased out cheques. Cheques have been amazing to receive over the years, and a large percentage of our donations come via cheque. We greatly appreciate your donations and understand that this may be a difficult time. Your peace of mind is our top priority. To get additional advice on how best to donate, we suggest you:  

Visit your local bank branch - the staff will be able to advise you of alternative ways you can donate to Life Flight. 

Contact us - we are here to help. Please feel free to email us at or phone 04 920 2242. 


Life Flight are currently getting a little extra help from our partners at Unity 4 to raise awareness about Life Flight and give members of the public the opportunity to support us. We are a small team so this allows us to focus on other areas of the organisation.
