Armadillo Self-Storage at Sheffield Parkway reach £14,000 donation milestone for Yorkshire Air Ambulance

Armadillo Self-storage in Sheffield Parkway has now donated £14,093 worth of storage space to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) is a lifesaving rapid response service, operating 365 days a year and covering the 4 million acres of Yorkshire with a population of 5 million people.

The charity has been using the Sheffield Parkway storage facility since 2014 to store fundraising equipment and merchandise, used by staff and volunteers to raise vital funds to keep both aircraft flying above Yorkshire.

The extensive support of the YAA from Armadillo Self-storage led to the firm receiving a special Corporate Partner Award at the annual Yorkshire Air Ambulance Recognition Awards in 2016.

Charlie Reeder, South Yorkshire Regional Fundraiser for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, said: “We would like to thank Armadillo Storage for their continued support and generosity over the last six years, businesses such as Armadillo are the life-blood of our charity.

It costs £12,000 a day to keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances maintained and in the air and having storage donated to us keeps our running costs down and ensures more of our donations go directly into saving lives across the region.”
