Michelle Raine

North Community Fundraiser

Meet Michelle Raine, our extraordinary Community Fundraiser for North Yorkshire at Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Nestled in the idyllic area of Wensleydale, Michelle joined our dynamic fundraising team in June 2023, ready to make a profound impact on the lives of others.

Michelle’s personal connection to our cause is deeply rooted in her own journey as an ex-patient. Driven by a deep sense of gratitude and passion, she recognised that working for YAA would allow her to utilise her experiences to give back. Reflecting on her role, Michelle said, “Joining YAA was a way for me to channel my gratitude and passion for the charity that once helped me. Being part of this fantastic team has been an incredible journey, where no two days have been the same. I absolutely love it!”

Outside the realm of fundraising, Michelle finds joy in her creative (and often messy) pursuits. Painting, baking, and drawing form the heart of her hobbies, allowing her to express her artistic spirit. An interesting fact about Michelle adds an adventurous twist to her story. At the age of 19, she embarked on an exciting journey, travelling around New Zealand. However, her adventures were cut short, when she suffered a serious accident, requiring the attention of our YAA crew whilst visiting family at home in the UK. Sadly, missing her return flight to New Zealand by a few days. (We are pleased to share that Michelle has since made a remarkable recovery).
