On 28 October, Spire Elland Hospital welcomed the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. A local representative came in to raise awareness for their amazing cause and raise some funds at the same time.
It was a pleasure to hear the following response from the charity the following week. "As an independent Charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals and organisations, such as yourself to help save lives across Yorkshire. We really are very grateful to you for your support."
"Your donation helps us to: provide a life -saving rapid response emergency service in Yorkshire to 5 million people across four million acres; operate seven days a week, 365 days a year; attend over 1,200 incidents a year, an average of four every single day and get patients to the most relevant treatment centre for their injuries, in the quickest time possible."
Yorkshire Air Ambulance 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 they need to raise £12,000 every single day. We would like to thank Yorkshire Air Ambulance for all their hard work they do, 24 hours a day.
