New Year Raffle and Tug of War raises valuable funds

The Joiners Arms Hampsthwaite challenged The Station Hotel Birstwith to the annual tug of war on New Year’s Day hosted by Tony & Becky Crannage, Licensees of the Joiners Arms. Yorkshire Air Ambulance were the winners with a fantastic £644.99 raised on the day.

Dedicated YAA volunteer Magaret Potter and her daughter helped sell six books of raffle tickets with 85 prizes up for grabs.

Tessa Klemz, North Regional Fundraiser, said: “A huge thank you to all at the Joiner’s Arms for organising the event and raising nearly £650 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, helping tremendously towards the vital funding of the YAA.”
