In an act of social giving the award-winning Hamilton-based Argent Motor Lodge have announced their renewed sponsorship of the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
“They are essentially our next-door neighbours and we often hear them overhead at our motel as they go to save lives, so it was only logical that we should sponsor them again,” says Argent Motor Lodge owner Graeme Hunt.
Based at the Jennian Hangar at the Waikato Hospital in Pembroke Street, Hamilton, the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter provides a 24-hour emergency service, 365 days a year. Arescue helicopter can be airborne in 10 minutes and, in a life or death situation this speed and agility can make all the difference.
Argent Motor Lodge in Hamilton is located only just 500m from the main entrance of Waikato Hospital and the landing pad for the Waikato Westpac Helicopter. “At Argent Motor Lodge we will assist with financial donations to the helicopter trust which will enable them continue the amazing work they do everyday,” adds Graeme.
The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter has contracts with ACC, DHB’s and NZ Police, providing approximately 50% of the operating costs. Which means they rely on the remaining 50% of funding to come from the community.
Argent Motor Lodge’s stylish and well-appointed rooms provide a comfortable and calming atmosphere for anyone who is need to stay close to the Waikato and Braemar Hospitals. “Frequently our guests are those who come here to stay while either supporting a sick relative or in some cases they are the patient who are waiting to go in for a procedure or treatment at the hospital,” says Graeme.
“At Argent Motor Lodge, we pride ourselves on how we look after our guests and in what we offer,” comments Graeme. The staff at Argent Motor Lodge are welcoming, friendly and will make your stay hassle and stress free.
