Tailoring the Perfect Partnership

Yorkshire based tailoring specialist, Skopes, has become the latest company to pledge its support to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance by making a sizeable donation and supplying three years’ worth of uniforms for their fundraising staff.

Established over 60 years ago in the heart of the textile industry, Skopes enjoys a rich history and heritage filled with the highest levels of innovation and service which is available through Skopes retail shops and within House of Fraser stores throughout the UK.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance approached Skopes about purchasing their staff uniforms, however, after an initial meeting Skopes wanted to support the charity and a three year sponsorship deal was agreed.

The Skopes logo has been applied to both Yorkshire Air Ambulance helicopters and the staff will be kitted out in Skopes tailored clothing for the next three years. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance team opted for the 247 Corporatewear collection in black which oozes premium quality and is perfect office wear.

Paul Gowland, Director of Fundraising at the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, said: “The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is proud of its strong partnerships within the local business community, and we very much value the support given to the Charity. We’d like to take this opportunity to thanks Skopes for their generous donation of not only ongoing financial support, but our staff uniforms which look great!”

Simon Cope, Managing Director of Skopes, commented on the partnership; “Our initial meeting with the Yorkshire Air Ambulance was about supplying uniforms to their fundraising staff, however after meeting the charity we recognised what great work they do and wanted to support them on an ongoing basis. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance saves the lives of many individuals and families every day, to keep both Air Ambulances in the air the charity needs to raise £12,000 per day, we wanted to contribute towards this.”

The partnership has been agreed for three years however Skopes look to support the charity on an ongoing basis. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is looking to engage with brands and companies in the region so if you could support the charity get in touch with them directly.
