It may surprise you to know that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Charity relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across Yorkshire.
In fact, as a charity, we only receive help through the secondment of paramedics and doctors from the NHS, through Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust.
To keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances in the air we need to raise £19,000 per day.
As a rapid response air emergency service the Charity serves a population of approximately 5 million people across 3 million acres. Our two air ambulances operate from our airbases at The Nostell Priory Estate near Wakefield and RAF Topcliffe near Thirsk, and together with our two Rapid Response Vehicles (RRVs) cover the whole of the region.
