This year our aim as a school is to raise £12,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. This is the cost of running the 2 air ambulances for one day. Form groups from all year groups will be working together to raise as much money as possible throughout the year.
To begin the fundraising, the money raised from the Christmas themed non-uniform day on Friday 11th December will go towards our total.
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a lifesaving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across the whole of Yorkshire.
To keep both the Air Ambulances maintained and in the air, they need 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.
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is 100% charity funded
It is a common misconception that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance is government funded and falls under the NHS. This is untrue. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity which relies heavily on the generosity of the public & organisations to keep the service active.
