I'm fundraising for...

Wednesday 7th Jul

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service as they change outcomes in our community every day.

I have accepted the Leaders Leap challenge to abseil down the face of McDonald Jones Stadium on Saturday 14 August 2021.

This event is designed to challenge! It is also an opportunity to reflect on the vital work of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter crew, who regularly winch people to safety from the bush, ocean and hard to access locations.

Please give generously and share my page with your friends, family and colleagues. Thank you for supporting the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service - your donation has the power to save lives.

Media and Emergency Services Liaison Westpac Rescue Helicopter. 

I was an Aircrew Officer for 38 years with the Service before hanging up helmet on the 16th October 2018. After then I moved into the Marketing Department as a Community Liaison Officer Iv seen firsthand the difference the service makes to families being on the front line for 38 years.

I have a great passion for the “Red Shirts” our volunteers and the Aircraft Engineering men and women who work around the clock to keep our aircraft serviceable 24 hours a day. These unsung heroes are often forgotten when our aircraft appear on the media.

Iv been married to wife Leesa for 32 years and have 2 beautiful daughters Jacque 28 and Georgia 26 who have all lived the highs and lows and supported me during my career My 2 boxer dogs Kiarlah and Benson have supplied unconditional love and support when coping with the trauma's I have witnessed over the years.

I love the outdoors, camping, gym (for my mental health) and looking forward to my next phase of my life as I near retirement.

Thank you to my Sponsors

Thank you Graham for all you do raising funds for Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. I’d never jump out of a perfectly good aircraft if I didn’t have to either but admire those in the Rescue Service that do so to save lives.


Graham And Kay Mercer
