Quite often, people are keen to organise a fundraising event for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance but they don’t always know where to start..

This section of our website is designed to help with a bit of inspiration for pointing potential fundraisers in the right direction to get started.

There are no real right and wrongs when it comes to raising funds for the YAA – just a bit of imagination at times! We will however, highlight a few areas which need a little more consideration than others.

If you would like to request a YAA representative to come along to your event, it is vital that we are given as much notice as possible. We attend many, many events, especially over the summer months and cannot guarantee that we will have someone available to attend an event at short notice (we classify short notice as 1 to 2 weeks). Ideally we require 4 weeks + notice to be able to bring our fundraising stall to events such as fetes/ galas/ fundays etc.

If you have any questions, need some fundraising resources, or just need extra help and advice, our friendly team at the Charity HQ will be more than happy to help and advise you.
