Tea Party Raises over £3,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance

Five hours of tea, cakes, tombola and raffle in the sunshine on Easter Sunday resulted in an incredible donation to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

John England (North Yorkshire) was rescued by the YAA on New Years Day and he strongly believes the incredible speed and superb care he received saved his life. Grateful for his excellent recovery, a group of John’s friends and family decided to host a Tea Party to raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The fantastic event in Sawley, North Yorkshire raised an incredible £3,045 for the YAA. A special shout out and thank you to Tiggy Ferris and Margaret England for their superb baking skills and Val Wood for her incredible tombola enthusiasm!

An amazing example of local generosity and fundraising. On behalf of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, thank you to all those who helped to organise and all those who attended the event and donated so generously.
