On 25th October 2020 we will celebrate 20 years of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

We are inviting you to celebrate with us by taking part in our Virtual Balloon Race.

The race will start at 12pm on Monday 19th October 2020 and will finish at 12pm on Sunday 25th October 2020.

To enter the race all you have to do is purchase a balloon of your choice from our shop, give it a name and add a message if you wish. The cost is £3 per balloon and you can enter as many balloons as you wish. There are over 25 different balloon colours/designs to choose from.


There will be prizes for the ballons that finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The prizes are:

1st place: £100 B&M Voucher – Donated by Doncaster Lakeside

2nd place: Marley Stir It Up Record Player

3rd place: Betty’s Gift Box – Donated by Betty’s Northallerton

There will also be a bonus price for the owner of the balloon finishing in 4th place.
