Groups unite to raise awareness about health and rescue work ' As many islanders will be only too aware, without this amazing helicopter service most people here would struggle to deal with medical emergencies and accidents ' Caroline Jarvie Age Concern is working with the Waiheke Health Trust and the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust to raise awareness of the combined organisations' services on the island. They will have a co-operative display at the Ostend market this Saturday morning which aims to inform people about what they do for the community. Age Concern volunteer co- ordinator for Waiheke Caroline Jarvie says it makes sense for the services to profile them- selves to the public together. Age Concern always wel- comes more people to take part in this most rewarding com- munity effort, of visiting people and keeping them company.'' Ms Jarvie says she has some surprises in store for the joint display and is looking forward to helping the other two organis- ations. The Waiheke Health Trust provides support services for people with health and dis- ability issues and the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust, which operates the Westpac rescue helicopter, is launching its main appeal next month. Ms Jarvie says the helicopter trust has some great events and competitions lined up for the island and more will be revealed at the market. As many islanders will be only too aware, without this amazing helicopter service most people here would struggle to deal with medical emergencies and accidents.'' Visit the market stall to show your support or to find out more about the three services. Contact Caroline Jarvie on email@example.com or 021 221 1564 to inquire about volunteering as an Age Concern visitor or if you know someone who would appreciate a visitor calling weekly. She can also be contacted about the helicopter appeal for information on how businesses can get involved. Contact Robyn Wilson on 372 8893 for inquiries about Waiheke Health Trust.
