Proceeds handed over to YAA

At our 6th October Club meeting at the Bridge Hotel, Lion Martin Doxey was delighted to present a cheque for £2,475 to Tracy Gregory from Yorkshire Air Ambulance , this being the proceeds from our Beer Festival last June, when YAA were the sole beneficiary. This is the third occasion that Wetherby Lions have helped Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Tracy said that YAA were most grateful for our continued support and went on to say that they rely wholly on charitable donations such as this to continue to run this vital service. She informed us that the population of the county of Yorkshire exceeds that of the whole of Scotland, a surprising statistic that came out from the recent Scottish referendum. She also announced that YAA is looking into the viability of purchase a third helicopter, to further improve the service.
