Yorkshire Air Ambulance were due to be the main beneficiary of the Wensleydale Wander organised by the Wensleydale Rotary Club this Summer but due to Covid19, the event was cancelled. That didn’t stop them still raising £1,000 from a Lockdown Limericks competition, asking for donations on their Zoom Charter Night celebrations and making and selling face masks. A huge thank you to the outgoing President, Susan Rogers for coming up with such ingenious ideas.
Tessa Klemz, North Yorkshire Community Fundraiser, said: “We would like to thank Susan and the Club for all their generous support during this difficult period when fundraising has been badly hit. The £1,000 raised will enable the Yorkshire Air Ambulance to continue saving lives across rural Wensleydale.”
