Back in July we turned our office yellow in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. The team got into the spirit by dressing in their finest yellow, feasting on a bake sale and finished the day with a bang with an office balloon pop for some amazing donated prizes.
Yellow Yorkshire has become a popular fundraising event for Yorkshire Air Ambulance and this year marks the first year of our support of the charity event. Over the course of the day the team raised an incredible £292 for the charity and continue to contribute weekly in the dress down Fridays for our chosen charities of the year.
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a lifesaving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across Yorkshire. To keep providing this life saving service, the Charity needs to raise £12,000 per day to keep both of Yorkshire’s Air Ambulances maintained and in the air.
Michelle, Finance Manager, comments “We are really enjoyed celebrating Yellow Yorkshire in the office and hope to raise as much money as possible for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance over this financial year. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance provide such a life-saving service to our region and we’re incredibly proud to be supporting them.”
