Rotary Clubs of Greater Wellington Free Ambulance Charitable Trust
The Rotary Wellington Ambulance Trust has been re-established to raise funds for Wellington Free Ambulance and assist with the purchase of capital items and in particular fit out equipment of new ambulances and the purchase of new emergency response vehicles. Wellington Free Ambulance provides the only free ambulance service in New Zealand . Paramedics respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of a year.  In all Wellington Free Ambulance provide invaluable and often lifesaving help in excess of 50,000 times a year.
One of the founders of Wellington Free Ambulance was Sir Charles Norwood who was an early Rotary pioneer in Wellington.  Today the ambulance service needs support from throughout the community to be able to undertake the tremendous work it does.
Many clubs throughout District 9940 have supported Wellington Free Ambulance for many years often by way of donations to assist with ongoing operating costs and very recently a number of clubs on the Kapiti Coast have been closely involved with fund raising for a new ambulance station in Waikanae.
The Rotary Wellington Ambulance Trust is another way to support the great work Wellington Free Ambulance does and coordinates the accumulation of funds from clubs for the purchase of major capital items vital for its operation and provides the appropriate recognition of Rotary.
