Wellington Free Ambulance Keyring

Wellington Free Ambulance silver keyring

Support Wellington Free Ambulance by purchasing a beautiful keyring designed and gifted to us by a local jeweller.

This keyring was created in memory of paramedic Andrew Truesdale. Andrew worked for Wellington Free between 2010 and 2013. He volunteered for several years before becoming a paramedic. He was a very professional and committed young man who cared very much about professional development and support for paramedics.

Andrew passed away in July 2013, but his memory lives on through the Truesdale Scholarship which was set up in his name by friends and family. All proceeds from the sale of these keyrings will go into the Truesdale Scholarship fund.

There are two styles of keyring. One is silver and costs $110. The other is brass with silver coating at $15 each. If you would like to purchase a keyring, please call 04 912 0357.

Alternatively you can download the order form on the left and email the completed form to info@wfa.org.nz or post to: Marketing Team, Wellington Free Ambulance, PO Box 601 Thorndon Wellington.

If you have any queries email info@wfa.org.nz.

Payroll giving

Payroll giving allows you to make donations to Wellington Free Ambulance automatically from your salary or wages and receive immediate tax benefits.

Donating this way means your tax refund (.33 cents in every dollar) can be credited back to you immediately instead of at the end of the financial year.

For example, if you make a $15 donation to Wellington Free Ambulance every week you will receive a tax credit of $5, meaning you only see a $10 reduction in your pay – and we still receive $15!

To support Wellington Free Ambulance talk to your employer and ask them to set up the scheme.

For more information about payroll giving visit the IRD website.

Donate your tax rebate

All donations to Wellington Free Ambulance of $5 or over are tax deductible in New Zealand. Claiming your tax and donating it to Wellington Free is a great way to make your donation go further.

To claim back your tax visit the IRD website for more information
