10 year old shaves his head to raise money for YAA

Callum Carver (North Yorkshire) used to have hair down to his shoulders and he really didn’t want to get a haircut. He was getting fed up of people continuously asking, “when are you going to get a haircut?” that he decided he would be drastic and shave his head…. But on one condition, he would ask people to donate to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Olivia Mulligan, North Yorkshire Community Fundraiser says, “what a pleasure to have met such an inspiring young lad. Callum is only 10 years old and it is heart-warming to know that some youngsters have a drive to fundraise and to make a real difference. And to raise over £400…well what an achievement.”

Callum participates in many outdoorsy activities and he himself said, “I see it flying over a lot. You never know when you might need it.”

It is thanks to generous people like Callum that we can continue to operate as a live saving service across Yorkshire. Thank you very much.
