B. Braun continues YAA support with South Yorkshire fleet sponsorship

Sheffield-based B. Braun Medical Ltd has pledged further support for Yorkshire Air Ambulance by sponsoring their fleet of fundraising vans in the South Yorkshire area.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance is a rapid lifesaving rapid response charity serving five million people across four million acres of Yorkshire. It costs £12,000 a day to keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances maintained and in the air.

The global medical manufacturer, which has offices worldwide, has been working with the Charity for over 17 years, offering financial and professional support, making them the Charity’s longest-standing corporate supporter. B. Braun has also funded the crew helmets for the life-saving Charity, offer valuable event management skills and advice as well as more recently sponsored one of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s new promotional vehicles.

The South Yorkshire fleet of vehicles is imperative to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance fundraising team, enabling them to travel to various locations across the area and carry vital fundraising equipment to events which helps spread the important message about the work the air ambulance does across the county.

Kerry Dwyer, Fundraising Director (West and South) for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, said: “The logistics of covering so many events day in and day out can be pretty complex for our teams, so we rely heavily on our vans to help us transport vital equipment to fundraising events across the region.  They give us the freedom and flexibility to get from event to event easily and help raise the £12,000 a day it costs to keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances maintained and in the air.

We would like to sincerely thank B. Braun for their continuous support and generosity over the years as one of our principal partners.”

Paul Skelton, Joint MD at B. Braun said: ‘Supporting the YAA is hugely important to us at B. Braun and over the years our employees have established a culture of giving back to help those in need within our communities. Sponsoring the YAA’s community vans is our latest pledge of support in our continued efforts to help the YAA provide crucial services for the people of Yorkshire.”
