Clarion Year of Fundraising

Since May 2016, the 100-strong team has hosted a huge range of fund-raising events from the usual bake sales, quizzes, raffles and organised sweepstakes, to sponsored mountain climbing, a beard growing competition and a pie-in-the- face game!

The team succeeded in raising £3,681 which was then matched by Clarion, enabling the firm to donate over £7,000 to Yorkshire Air Ambulance, massively beating its £5,000 fundraising target.

“The Clarion team has really risen to the challenge, coming up with lots of weird and wonderful ways of raising much-needed funds for this great Yorkshire charity,” explains Roger Hutton, managing partner of Clarion.  “Many thanks to everyone for their generosity and enthusiasm – it’s been great fun as well as helping Yorkshire Air Ambulance to continue saving lives throughout the region.”

Kerry Garner of Yorkshire Air Ambulance: “We rely on the generosity of individuals and organisations to enable us to operate our two air ambulances and provide lifesaving state-of-the-art care to a population of around five million people across four million acres; a service which costs £12,000 a day to run.  We really appreciate Clarion’s efforts on our behalf.”

To date, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance has rescued over 7,000 people in the region.
