Yorkshire Air Ambulance have welcomed a new Community Fundraiser to it's team in West Yorkshire. Lisa Blezard has recently joined the Charity and will become a familiar face across fundraising events in the West of the region.
Lisa, 30, who is from Brown Green in Normanton was previously an information systems officer for Wakefield District Council. She is one of a small team of fundraisers working for YAA across Yorkshire which needs to raise £9,990 each day to keep its two helicopters in the air.
She will be working with West Yorkshire Regional Fundraiser Kerry Garner, by representing the Charity at events and coordinating its volunteers’ activities throughout the area.
Kerry commented “I’m absolutely delighted to welcome Lisa to the team, and I’m really looking forward to working with her. We have a hugely busy summer planned attending events including fetes, galas, shows and various other fundraising activities so there is plenty to keep us busy.”
The Charity, which has transported more than 5,000 people to hospital since taking to the skies in 2000, provides a rapid response emergency service to five million people across Yorkshire – England’s largest region
