This region is as diverse as it is wide. This Young Farmers community ranges from farmers to people working in other rural industries, giving this region a varied range of skills and specialities. It’s a plus that they have some amazing beaches too.

When you vote for WaiBOP you are voting to support the Waikato Westpac rescue helicopter and the WaiBOP team.

“The Waikato health system is under a lot of pressure at the moment , but this service continues to strive to keep people in rural communities connected. A lot of farms in the area may one day need the assistance of this life saving service due to their isolation so it’s important to continue to support them. Most people unfortunately know of someone that has had to take a ride in one of the Westpac choppers, which is just one more reason to support them, so that they will always be there if we need them”  Emma Poole, WaiBOP representative.
