Ellis Bates generously support Yorkshire Air Ambulance as their Charity of the Year in 2019.

The staff at Ellis Bates Financial Advisers in Harrogate created a long list of imaginative ways to raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and raised a staggering £3,300.00 in the process.

Staff paid £2 on monthly “Dress Down Days”, organised monthly Butty Mornings, created Themed Staff Lunches (Halloween/Valentines/School Dinners/Afternoon Teas/BBQ), numerous raffles were arranged, book stalls, bake sales, an Ice Cream Van visited the offices and a Christmas Jumper Day and a Staff Tuck Shop were also advertised.  The brave and bold employees also took part in a Charity Abseil Day.

Linda Stead, North Yorkshire Regional Fundraiser and Tessa Klemz, Community Fundraiser visited the Ellis Bates offices to thank them for all their amazing fundraising efforts and accepted their life-saving donation of £3,300.00.
