The Yorkshire Air Ambulance

Simply Stitch is pleased to support The Yorkshire Air Ambulance....

It may surprise you to know that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Charity relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across Yorkshire.

In fact as a Charity they only receive help through secondment of paramedics from the NHS, through Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust. To keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances in the air they need to raise £12,000 per day. 

This is equivalent to £4.4 million per year. As a rapid response air emergency service the Charity serves a population of approximately 5 million people across 4 million acres. Their two Air Ambulances operate from The Nostell Priory Estate near Wakefield and RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk, and together both Air Ambulances cover the whole of the region.

This is a summary of the amount raised so far at events at Simply Stitch.....

August 2016       £178.77

June 2017           £155.00

December 2017  £207.78

August 2018       £349.25       Total so far = £890.80
