WESTPAC Life Saver Rescue Helicopter is aiming to raise $100,000 by the end of June to help keep the service in the air.

The helicopter marks its 30th year this year. General manager Kris Beavis said it began when a group of locals realised a helicopter was needed to quickly reach people in trouble in big seas.

To donate to the End of Financial Year appeal, phone the Lismore Helibase on 6627 4444, go online to helirescue.com.au or visit any Westpac Bank Branch.
