Overwhelming support following stolen flight helmet

Overwhelming support following stolen flight helmet

“The Charity have been absolutely overwhelmed by the expressions of support since the incident in Shipley on Thursday evening.


As well as being inundated with messages of support, we have received many donations to contribute towards funding the replacement of the damaged helmet.  These also include some pledges to fund the full replacement cost of the helmet, as well as a generous offer from a supplier to replace the helmet for us.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has made a donation and offered their support.  Any monies donated to the YAA will contribute towards the £12,000 we need to raise every day to keep our helicopters in the air and helping to save lives across Yorkshire.

We genuinely are blessed to have the most kind and generous supporters – thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.”

Abby Barmby, Director of Marketing & Communications
