Warrington based company SorryMate.com have pledged over £1,000 per year to support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance to help keep them saving lives of motorcyclists across the region.

Last year the Yorkshire Air Ambulance responded to 1,523 incidents, 113 of which were motorcycle accidents.

SorryMate offers free legal advice to bikers in need of assistance on a no win, no fee basis. The company is run by qualified solicitors who are also bikers themselves.

SorryMate pride themselves on giving back to charities, particularly air ambulances who serve many of their clients they and have decided this year to support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance by handing them a cheque for an initial £1,000 and pledging £100 a month to help the life-saving service.

Fergus Dalgarno, founder of sorrymate.com, said: “The air ambulance save many lives each month, many of whom are bikers. Over the years their skills have grown so that now they are considered in many areas to be a mobile Accident and Emergency Unit, able to perform many life-saving skills at the scene of an accidents.”

Speaking of why they chose to support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Fergus said: “People should support the air ambulance for the same reason they support the NHS, because they are an integral part of healthcare, looking after everyone. They only difference is air ambulances is are not government funded.”

Rob Scott, East Yorkshire Regional Fundraiser for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, said: “We would like to thank SorryMate for their support over the years and for their very generous donation.  It costs £12,000 a day to keep both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances maintained and in the air and donations from companies such as SorryMate are the lifeblood of our charity.”
