Potter’s Eggs Saving Lives In Yorkshire

Potter’s Eggs Saving Lives In Yorkshire

Buying free range eggs really could help to save lives as James Potter pledges to donate 1p from every dozen James Potter eggs sold to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The company expects to raise £15,000 through sales over the next 12 months, which is equivalent to keeping Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s two helicopters in the air for almost two days, or paying the VAT on the charity’s fuel usage for the next three years, based on last year’s figures.

The partnership was launched by Yorkshire Farmhouse Director, James Potter and MP for Thirsk, Malton and Filey, Anne McIntosh who welcomed one of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s to the farm recently.

James Potter has more than 200,000 free range hens at Yorkshire Farmhouse and together they will be raising vital funds to keep the charity’s helicopters and team airborne and rescuing lives.

Director James Potter said: “This region has one of the best air ambulance services in the country, which receives no public funding. Through this partnership we want to do all we can to help keep the two ambulances in the air so that the charity can continue providing its life-saving service.”
