Onesie Day

Thank you for being onsie-ful Greater Wellington and Wairarapa!






Onesie Day


Why Onesie Day?

We chose Onesie Day as the theme for our annual appeal because it celebrates us being the one and only emergency ambulance service in the Greater Wellington and Wairarapa, and the only ones in the country who are free!

Thank you for being onsie-ful Greater Wellington and Wairarapa!

You showed us the most incredible Onesie Day this year, with so many awesome onesie wearers and events happening right across the region.

Volunteer this Onesie Day

Will you be the one(sie) and help keep us free for everyone who needs us?
