Yorkshire Air Ambulance

Learn all about the life-saving work of Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) by requesting a virtual speaker for your community group or business. Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a lifesaving rapid response emergency service to five million people across the whole of Yorkshire. The service is operational seven days a week, 365 days a year. The charity currently attend over 1,500 incidents a year, an average of five incidents every single day.
To keep both of Yorkshire’s Air Ambulances maintained and in the air, the YAA needs to raise £12,000 every single day, which is the equivalent of £4.4m a year. The generosity that they receive really is the life blood of the charity.
Like many charities across the UK, in light of COVID-19, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance has had to adapt many of their fundraising activities and by taking their speaker presentations online they’re hoping to keep Yorkshire Air Ambulance at the forefront of their supporter’s minds and spread much needed awareness of their vital work across the region.
Virtual events are a great way to socialise and stay in touch with your community group or colleagues and booking a YAA speaker to take part is a great way to inspire your group members or employees to take part in charity fundraising. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to ask the Yorkshire Air Ambulance team of dedicated fundraisers those burning questions that you may have about the charity, such as ‘Why are the Yorkshire Air Ambulance helicopters yellow?’
Virtual talks can be between 30 and 60 minutes long so that they can fit into busy schedules and can take place at a time and date to suit your group or to take place during a virtual event that you may already have arranged. As well as joining your event as a guest speaker, it may also be possible for the YAA speaker to host the event. They can set up the online call via the preferred online platform and issue the link for you to share with you group. You can discuss this options with the YAA fundraiser when they contact you.
