Dressage Competitions raises a mammoth £2,800.00

Dressage Competitions raises a mammoth £2,800.00

Yvonne Hainsworth and her daughter Carla organised a series of dressage competitions over the Summer that culminated in a Black Tie Presentation Evening at the Millstones near Harrogate.  The Crystal Cup was presented to the winning rider plus a very impressive cheque for £2,800.00 to Tessa Klemz, North Community Fundraiser for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.  Fabulous raffle prizes were on offer, a delicious dinner, dancing and lots of cups and sashes were presented to the successful riders, all in memory of their friend Carey.

One of Yvonne’s work colleagues made a sensational helicopter cake complete with battery-operated rotating rotor blades and a very life-like and edible paramedic!

As an independent charity, needing to raise £12,000 each day to keep the two yellow helicopters flying and maintained, the fundraising efforts from Yvonne, Carla and all at the Crystal Cup Presentation Evening is a life-saving amount.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance thank everyone involved for their generosity.
