One of our long standing corporate supporters, the Masham based I’Ansons have raised an incredible £1,666 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance by completing the Total Challenge 12K challenge.
I’Anson Brothers Ltd is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of animal feed based in Yorkshire. They are a family run business and have been serving farmers nationwide since 1900.
Over the last three years, the I Ansons have pledged £60,000 from their energy savings to help us purchase our vital Night Vision Goggles, which have helped us extend our flying hours into the darkest of evenings.
The company has also raised money through renting out their distribution yard to television production crews and the Tour de Yorkshire and by taking part in various funding raising activities, such as the Great North Run.
Their extensive fundraising has led the I’Ansons to win one of our Yorkshire Air Ambulance Corporate Supporter Awards last October at our annual Yorkshire Air Ambulance Recognition Awards.
Helen Callear, Yorkshire Air Ambulance Director of Fundraising North and East, said: “Once again I’Anson bros have proven themselves to be made of true Yorkshire grit. The Total Warrior team made up of employees from all across the company including MD Chris I’Anson, and other senior staff demonstrated the benefits of having fun with your colleagues and the joy of getting dirty whilst raising funds for the YAA!
We are extremely lucky to have corporate support from I’Anson Bros, thank you to all for helping us achieve our fundraising targets.”
