Our Calderdale Community Dietitians chosen charity 'The Yorkshire Air Ambulance' was selected for a generous £1000 donation from Aymes Nutrition Products, after one of their Dieticians, Lisa Green saw them in action at a mountain biking event.
Vickie Bowden, Regional fundraiser for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, was delighted to receive the cheque and explained that £1000 will fund the air ambulance for 2 hours.
This will make a big difference and will help to save lives in Yorkshire.
Lisa (pictured bottom right) explained why they chose the Yorkshire Air Ambulance: "I take part in the Colne Valley Mountain Bike Challenge every year.
"At the end of this year's race in May I helped after a cyclist suffered a heart attack. The air ambulance were on scene just a few minutes after the ambulance travelled by road, so it feels really close to home knowing how important the service is that they provide".
Keep up the good work YAA, we are all proud of the work you do!
