Our Leeds self storage facility are very proud to have supported the amazing Yorkshire Air Ambulance for over ten years, through donating much-needed storage space to the charity on a long term basis. Yorkshire Air Ambulance are an independent charity, meaning they receive no government funding and are completely reliant on donations.
They provide lifesaving rapid emergency service to 5 million people across the whole of Yorkshire, and have been doing so for the past 20 years. In order to keep both of their helicopters maintained and in the air, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance need to raise £12,000 per day – which is not an easy task!
Jenny and Vickie (pictured above) from the Yorkshire Air Ambulance were at our Leeds storage site the other day, and Jenny (who is a Regional Fundraising Manager with the charity) said:
“We’d like to say a very big thank you to The Store Room Leeds, who have been supporting the Yorkshire Air Ambulance for over 10 years now, providing us with free storage for our fundraising materials. We’re so grateful for their generous support which has saved the charity thousands of pounds over the years! Support from the wonderful businesses across Yorkshire is so vital to keep our helicopters in the air and helping to save lives.
This week we were at the unit getting summer ready and dusting off our stock and equipment ready to see everyone again when restrictions allow. We’ve missed everyone so much and we can’t wait to get back out to much loved events!”
There are a wide range of ways that you can support the charity, such as buying YAA merchandise from the online shop, or signing up for the YAA Lottery and being in with the chance of winning a cash prize. Please consider supporting them if you are able to – the work they do literally saves lives across Yorkshire!
We are very proud to have supported the charity for such a long period, and are looking forward to the upcoming fundraising events!
