Onesie Day

Celebrate our region’s one-of-a-kindness with the only free ambulance service in the country
‹ Get Involved

Onesie Day is back! Make sure you put Friday 7 September 2018 in your diary and dig out your Onesie ready for the big day!

Why Onesie Day?

Onesie Day celebrates Wellington Free Ambulance being the only emergency ambulance service in Greater Wellington and Wairarapa and the only ones in the country who are free. 

The appeal’s ‘long weekend’ features heaps of different events and activities by schools, businesses and community groups including BBQs, bake sales and collection spots in key locations.

Funds raised go directly towards new ambulances, life-saving equipment, advanced clinical training and research, and much, much more.  

Want to volunteer for our Street Appeal?

This year our street appeal is taking place on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 September and we'd love you to help! 

If you're keen to get involved and can spare a few hours to help collect in your neighbourhood, you're exactly who we're looking for.  Last year we had 200 volunteers collecting all over Wellington and Wairarapa and we know we can do the same again this year!
