We’ve once again raised thousands of pounds for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, by donating money every time we sell a Gadget and Leisure or Home Emergency policy and by having some seriously fun fundraising activities!
This year, we took the opportunity to boost our annual fundraising by and making our office awash with yellow for the charity’s “Yellow Yorkshire Day”.
Teams dressed up in a variety of yellow costumes, we had a yellow-themed bake off competition and other crazy games. Through the generosity of the company and staff, we’ve been able to write Yorkshire Air Ambulance a cheque for a whopping £3,170.80.
Our Director Laura Wilby said she was proud to have once again been able to donate lots of money to the life-saving charity.
Last year, we helped to pay for a set of specialist helmets for the air crew, which allowed them to attach their new night vision goggles, and fly in the sky for longer.
“We’re delighted to be able to continue to support Yorkshire Air Ambulance to enable them to save lives across our vast county,” said Laura. “One of our company values is care completely, demonstrating our commitment to proactively supporting others.”
Yorkshire Air Ambulance needs to raise £12,000 every day to keep its two helicopters flying. The charity serves five million people across Yorkshire, attending on average, more than 1,000 incidents a year.
Kerry Garner, West & South Yorkshire Regional Fundraising Manager for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be working with an organisation that shares the same values as the charity. We’d like to thank the staff at Caravan Guard for really getting behind all the fundraising initiatives they organise for the YAA and making them such a huge success. It’s organisations such as this that enable us to continue saving lives across the region.”
Caravan Guard has a strong commitment of supporting a number of local and national charities and last year donated more than £90,000 to a range of community causes.
