THOSE dropping in for their morning coffee will be greeted by a sea of red and yellow as Toast Espresso supports Westpac Helicopter Service's annual Chopper Day.

Cafe owner Judy Hackett said today was a chance to give back to the crew that plays such a huge role in our community.

"Getting involved and helping to raise money for this essential service is something that we, and many other local businesses feel is extremely important," Mrs Hackett said.

"Toast Espresso has already made some plans with business neighbours to contribute $1000 (today) towards Westpac's fundraising goal of $100,000 for 2014."

Toast staff will today sell coffee in printed chopper day cups while wearing red and yellow caps.

Make your way to Toast Espresso or Hanks Kitchen throughout the morning to join in the festivities and see some of the team from Westpac Bank who will be out and about collecting donations as well as some local real estate faces from Ray White, Elders, Bailey & Gough and LJ Hooker and even our very own mayor Richie Williamson testing out some new skills at Toast from 8am.
