“The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a life-saving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across the whole of Yorkshire. The service is operational seven days a week, 365 days a year. The Charity currently attend over 1,000 missions a year, an average of 3 incidents every single day. Last year they treated 1067 patients at scene and carried 599 of those to hospital for emergency treatment.
The YAA currently operates two helicopters – one based at Nostell Air Support Unit, near Wakefield and the other at RAF Topcliffe, near Thirsk.
To keep both of Yorkshire’s Air Ambulances maintained and in the air, the YAA needs to raise £12,000 every single day, which is the equivalent of £4.4m a year. The generosity that they receive really is the life blood of the Charity.”
Abby McClymont, Director of Marketing & Communications:
“We’re absolutely delighted to have won the Buy Yorkshire Gold Sponsorship Package and want to thank everyone that voted for us – we really appreciate this opportunity. We have been attending the Buy Yorkshire Conference since the very beginning, and have always found it greatly beneficial and a fantastic opportunity for us to network with Yorkshire Businesses and raise our profile within the corporate sector. As a Yorkshire Charity we pride ourselves on keeping as much of the monies raised in Yorkshire within the region, so it’s a great way for us to meet contacts that we can also help to support. We are really looking forward to the conference in May.”
