Melmerby Festival Marvellously support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance

Melmerby Festival Marvellously support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance

Melmerby Festival, now in its third year, this year took place on 31st August. The afternoon raised a wonderful £498.26 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance all whilst showcasing great music and entertainment for families and creating a true community spirit.

Over the 3 years, the festival has raised a very impressive £1,652.13 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance – the majority of this being from a raffle that they do each year. The YAA would like to say a huge thank you to all those involved in organising, and of course, for the generosity of those attending on the day.

As in independent charity needing to raise £12,000 each day (4.4 million a year) to keep the two helicopters flying, maintained and saving lives across Yorkshire, we are so grateful for such incredible local support.
