We are delighted that Q8Oils has chosen us as part of its 2014 CSR programme

Flying seven days a week, 365 days a year, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) is an independent charity providing a life-saving, rapid-response emergency service to over five million people across Yorkshire. The service covers major cities, motorways and rural and isolated locations in the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks.

Commenting on the announcement, YAA Regional Fundraiser, Kerry Garner says: “We are delighted that Q8Oils has chosen us as part of its 2014 CSR programme. Their generosity, like that of our other patrons and supporters, is the lifeblood of the charity, without which we would not be able to provide the service that we are so proud of.”

The charity needs to raise nearly £10,000 per day (£3.65 million per year) to keep both of its MD902 Explorer air ambulances maintained and in the air; and Q8Oils has already planned its first fundraising event as part of its efforts. The first event is the 25 mile Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge which will take place on Saturday 5th April and Q8Oils is inviting staff and their friends and family to take part or make a donation.

Commenting for Q8Oils, country manager Andy Dixon says: “The Yorkshire Air Ambulance receives no direct government funding so we are arranging numerous fundraising events throughout the year to help raise funds from our friends, families, customers and suppliers to ensure that the YAA keeps providing life saving services.”
