On 23 May, a wonderful day of fundraising took place at Oakdale Golf Club, Harrogate, organised by Rotary Harrogate Brigantes.
At 5pm, when the golfing antics were coming to a close, we were greeted by one of our yellow helicopters and the crew. Yorkshire Air Ambulance wanted to sincerely thank the Harrogate Brigantes for raising a phenomenal £22,790.30 to date.
This total has been raised from various fundraising – a fine example being their annual Santa’s Grotto in Asda, Harrogate. In addition, this golf day will see their total soar well above £23,000 as that evening a brilliantly entertaining auction took place….the room was full of laughter, joy and generosity. A brilliant day of fundraising indeed.
Their ongoing support is very inspiring and truly life-saving. As an independent charity needing to raise £12,000 each day, we rely on such incredible local generosity and are so grateful to have such kind and loyal support.
