Wetherby District Lions were very pleased to be able to present a cheque for £1,000 to Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Let’s hope you never need their services but rest assured that if you do, they will be there !

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) is an independent charity providing a lifesaving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across the whole of Yorkshire. The service is operational seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. The charity currently attend over 1,500 incidents a year, an average of four incidents every single day.

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.
