An ECT beneficiary is any person living, conducting an activity or carrying on business in the Gisborne district.
ECT has announced continuing support for the Eastland Rescue Helicopter Trust, with $1.25 million funding over the next five years. The helicopter currently flies about 80 missions a year and covers the area between Mahia and Waikaremoana in the South to the East Cape and around to Te Kaha.
ECT supported this inaugural event with partial entry sponsorship. The event, held Feb 20 2013, was well received with over 600 children aged 7-15 participating.
ECT has invested a further $750,000 into extending this programme to include subsidised insulation for those who previously did not qualify as they did not hold a community services card. ECT has now committed $4.5 million to insulation programmes for low income families in the past five years, including this allocation.
