The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a life saving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across Yorkshire.
We fly seven days a week, 365 days a year, covering a vast landscape that not only includes major cities and motor ways, but also rural and isolated locations.
The two helicopters are based at Leeds Bradford International Airport and RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk, this provides first-rate geographical locations to be able to serve the Yorkshire region in the emergency stature that they are doing every day, the Charity serves a population of approximately 5 million people across 4 million acres.
The charity relies solely on donations made by the public, which requires each day £9990 to be raised and the equivalent of £3.6million every year, and the secondment of paramedics from the NHS. The donations raised are used to maintain and keep in the air both helicopters all year round, however you can also help the Yorkshire Air Ambulance by becoming a volunteer.
While volunteering at the Yorkshire Air Ambulance I will be helping the Charity with their stall at the Nidderdale Show.
