Business For Calderdale Promotes Yorkshire Air Ambulance

The work of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance was promoted at the latest meeting of Business for Calderdale.

Through the Yorkshire Business Supporters Network, the charity which has an office based in Elland, are encouraging businesses to become brand members.

Eastwood and Partners (Financial Services), of Elland, hosted the event which was addressed by YAA Chief Pilot Andy Lister, Regional Fundraising Manager Nicky Massen, and ex-patient Carrie Cheeseman who was seriously injured in an accident which the YAA attended and helped save her life, as well as later being called out to her husband after a cycling accident. She said nobody ever knew when their loved ones would need the service.

The YAA needs to raise £7,200 per day to keep both air ambulances in the air.
