Think of us for your last cheque

Think of us for your last cheque

For years, our amazing donors have supported us by sending in cheques however, as of 25 June 2021, we unfortunately can no longer accept cheques.

We will be sad to see them go as it’s always a great feeling opening a letter and out floats a personal hand written cheque in support of Wellington Free Ambulance.

Last week, we stopped in to say thank you to Kathleen who thought of us for her last cheque. Kathleen is Abi’s (left) nana and has generously supported us since 2014.
