From rescue missions to patient transfers, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service is a vital organisation in the Hunter region.

Recipients never pay a dollar to utilise the lifesaving service, and it's all thanks to the efforts of groups such as the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service Cessnock Volunteer Support Group.

Over the years, the group has raised thousands of dollars for the rescue service.

But, they need a little extra help this year and are calling on the community to step up and sponsor their latest fundraiser

Chairperson Patsy Black said the group was looking for sponsors and players to sign to support its Week of Golf, running from May 7 to 11.

"It's a great way for the community to support a free service that helps everyone," she said.

There will also be a special dinner with guest speakers on May 8 and four person Ambrose and lunch on May 10. For more information about becoming a sponsor player, call Patsy on 0417 901 146.
