Harrogate Advanced Bikes support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance

PrintIt may surprise you to know that Yorkshire Air Ambulance relies solely on the generosity of individuals and organisations to help save lives across Yorkshire. As a rapid response air emergency service the Charity serves a population of approximately 5 million people across 4 million acres. In order to provide this fantastic service YAA needs to raise £9,990 per day which, is equivalent to £3.6 million per year in order to keep its two helicopters and highly trained secondment paramedics from the NHS, through Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust in the air.
