Patron & Life Members

Her Excellency The Right Honourable Dame Patsy Reddy Governor-General of New Zealand is Life Flight’s Patron.

The tradition of having the Governor-General in the role of being Life Flight’s Patron began in 1987. Sir Paul Reeves offered Life Flight his support after hearing about Peter Button’s tragic death shortly after he had bestowed him with the honour of the Queen's Medal for Gallantry.
